Abstract


Argoptochus sappho sp. n. and Pelletierellus bryophilus sp. n. from Lesbos island, Greece, Cathormiocerus kostali sp. n. from Morocco, and C. meyeri sp. n. from Portugal are described. New faunistic data are presented for Argoptochus moraveci Borovec, 2006, Cathormiocerus inflatiscapus Escalera, 1918, C. jeani (Borovec, 1989), C. longiscapus Pic, 1912, C. tenuiscapus Fairmaire, 1884, Pelletierellus bosnicus (Apfelbeck, 1898) and P. neglectus (Borovec, 1992). Males of Cathormiocerus inflatiscapus Escalera, 1918 and C. tenuiscapus Fairmaire, 1884 are described for the first time and the penises of these species are illustrated.
