Abstract

The redescriptions of Hyalarthrodosis monodi (Pierre, 1974) and Hyalerodius jirofti Kaszab, 1979, species hitherto known from single and damaged specimens, are supplemented based on the newly accessed material. The structure of male genitalia of these taxa is described for the first time. The key to the Asian genera of the Arthrodosis-like Erodiini is modified to include new diagnostic characters. New distributional records for the studied species are provided. The evolutionary adaptations to the ultrapsammophilous lifestyle within Tenebrionidae are discussed.
