Abstract

Athous (Orthathous) yozgatiensis Kabalak and Sert, new species, from Yozgat, Turkey is described. Photograph of the adult, drawings of the antenna and aedeagus, a key to the new and closely related species, a distribution map, and differential diagnosis table are given. The new species is similar to Athous kovancii Platia and Athous fragariae Platia and Kovanci, but is distinguished clearly by the second antennal segment slightly longer than wide, third antennal segment longer than second, and broadly rounded apex of parameres.
