Abstract

The species of the genus Scirtes Illiger, 1807 (Coleoptera: Scirtidae) from Argentina are revised. Seven species are recognized: S. adustus Boheman, 1858, S. caraguata sp. nov., S. dentatus sp. nov., S. diversenotatus Pic, 1930, S. gallus sp. nov., S. helicoidalis sp. nov., and S. rufobinotatus Pic, 1922. S. postimpressus Pic, 1922 is proposed as a junior synonym of Scirtes rufobinotatus. Illustrations of dorsal habitus, male and female genitalia, and other diagnostic features are provided along with a key to the species.
