Abstract

Research up to this point has recorded two species of Afrotropical Heloridae: Helorus ruficornis Förster and H. elgoni Risbec. After examining recently collected specimens from Kenya and Burundi, we have been able to better understand intraspecific variation within Helorus ruficornis, and as a result, we hereby synonymize H. elgoni with H. ruficornis, redescribe H. ruficornis, and illustrate the holotype of H. elgoni for the first time. We also discuss new collection records for Afrotropical Heloridae, as well as possible habitat preferences.
