TitleA new species of the genus Aphanisticus (Coleoptera: Buprestidae)
JournalNotes from the Leyden Museum
AbstractIn 1889 I described (Notes Leyd. Mus. XI, p. 237) a Buprestid of the genus Aphanisticus the larva of which was found at Kagob (Tegal: West-Java) mining in the under surface of the leaves of sugar-cane. I named it after its discoverer Aphanisticus Krügeri. At the same time I gave in the »Nederlandsch Tijdschrift voor Entomologie” (vol. XXXIII, p. XXII) a short notice (with figures) about the larva and the mode of life of this insect.
Now I am able to describe another species of the same genus, the larva of which is found in Eastern Java (Pasoeroean) likewise mining in the leaves of sugar-cane. A few specimens of this species, which will be described in this Note under the name of Aphanisticus consanguineus, are sent to me by Dr. L. Zehntner, who is intended to publish a full account concerning the different stages of development and the mode of life elucidated by figures.
