- Succinoomorphus warchalowskii Bukejs, Andris, 2015, Zootaxa 3931: 128-129.
Diagnosis. Vertex with longitudinal medial groove and with groove at inner and upper margins of eye, lateral margins of pronotum concave and without carina, prohypomera concave on whole surface, epipleura with weak projection in basal 1 / 3, legs strongly flattened.
Description. Body broadly oval, convex. Head flat in lateral view; vertex with longitudinal medial groove. Eyes weakly notched, convex; with groove at inner and upper margins. Clypeus transverse. Antennae filiform, antennal insertions widely separated. Pronotum transverse, narrowed anteriorly and convex medially, lateral margins without carina. Intercoxal prosternal process large, procoxal cavity open posteriorly, prohypomera concave over whole surface. Scutellum triangular. Humeral calli present. Elytral punctures arranged in regular striae. Epipleura horizontal, with weak and flat projection in basal 1 / 3. Coxae more or less transverse. Abdomen with five visible ventrites; ventrite 1 longest, about as long as ventrites 2 and 3 combined; distal border of ventrite 5 and lateral borders of ventrites 3 and 4 with fine transverse folding. Pygidium completely covered by elytra. Legs short, femora and tibiae strongly flattened, dorsal surface of protibiae flat, ventrolateral side of meso- and metatibiae with broad groove, metafemur reaching abdominal ventrite 3, tarsal claws simple. Comparison. This new genus differs from the fossil genus Archelamprosomius gen. nov. in possessing a groove at upper and inner margins of eye, vertex with longitudinal median groove, lateral margins of pronotum not bordered, surface of prohypomera concave over whole surface, epipleura with weak and flat projection in basal 1 / 3, femora and tibiae strongly widened and flattened, protibiae with flat dorsal surface, outer ventrolateral side of meso- and metatibiae with broad groove, metafemora reached third abdominal ventrite.
