Abstract

We describe the mature larva of Sefrania bleusei Pic and establish the new genus Araphonotos Beal and Kadej for the reception of S. sabulorum (Beal). We argue the latter species is erroneously assigned to the genus Sefrania. Tables comparing S. bleusei and A. sabulorum indicate a generic distinction between the two. Also provided are important differences between Araphonotos and the type species of Novelsis (Attagenus horni Jayne), the genus to which S. sabulorum was initially assigned.
