Abstract

Two new Bloszykiella species are discovered and described from the Afrotropical realm. Bloszykiella rammsteinisp. nov. (from Zimbabwe) differs from its congeners in the sculptural pattern of the dorsal shield, the strongly sclerotized U-shaped grooves on the dorsal shield and pilose dorsal setae. Bloszykiella lindemannisp. nov. (from Rwanda) differs from the other species in the shape of the sternal setae, setae on the apical margin of the pygidial shield and the sculptural pattern of the female genital shield.
