Abstract

Lissotes krakei Bartolozzi, de Keyzer, and Zilioli, new species, is described from the Victorian Alps of Australia. The new taxon is closely related to Lissotes darlingtoni Benesh, 1943 and Lissotes furcicornis Westwood, 1871 from which it differs in the shape of the male head and mandibles, the female canthus, and the punctation and shape of the head and pronotum of both sexes. An updated list of the species in Lissotes Westwood inhabiting mainland Australia is given, and a key for their identification is included.
