Name

Halocoryza whiteheadiana Erwin sp. n.Wikispecies linkZooBank linkPensoft Profile

Common name

Whitehead’s Saline Catarrh Beetle

Holotype. México

Baja California Sur, Isla Carmen, north end, sea level, approximately “26.05°N, 111.1°W,” 18-19 July 1984 (S.E. Miller) (NMNH: ADP127139, female).

Derivation of specific epithet

The epithet “whiteheadiana” is an eponym, based on the family name of Donald R. Whitehead†, who had a profound interest in the species of this genus and its adelphotaxon, Schizogenius Putzeys, during his relatively short career.

Proposed English vernacular name

Whitehead’s Saline Catarrh Beetle.

Diagnosis

With the attributes of the genus described by Whitehead (1966)[1] and large sized for the genus. Adults rufotestaceous and shiny throughout; shallow microsculpture only in sulci. Occiput five-carinate each side with one medial and two lateral carinae on frons. Clypeus with 3 prominent tubercles; lateral margins prominently lobate. Elytron with 10 setae in interval 3, close to interneur 2.

Description

(Fig. 3). Size: Very small, ABL = 2.8 mm, SBL = 2.52 mm, EW = 0.69 mm, LP = 0.647mm, WP = 0.622mm, LE = 1.476mm. Color: Rufotestaceous throughout. Luster:Shiny throughout. Head: Labrum slightly emarginate apically, six-setose. Frons markedly tri-tuberculate apically, laterally markedly lobate, lobes nearly vertical, bicarinate basally, carinae set on an angle, widest basally. Eyes slightly convex; gena short and flat. Occiput five-carinate each side; rim above eye also carinate. Prothorax: Markedly convex, moderately longer than broad (W/L: 0.96), narrowed basally anteriad of posterior lateral pore; surface smooth, five-sulcate; lateral sulci 2/3 length of pronotum, extended to posterior lateral pore, paramedian sulci sigmoid shaped, not reaching base, median sulcus deep, extended from near apex to base of pronotum, slightly crossing anterior transverse sulcus; anterior and posterior lateral setae present. Pterothorax: Elytra markedly convex (W/L: 0.46), intervals markedly convex, intervals 3, 5, and 7 each with a serial row of setiferous punctures, 10 such in interval 3. Legs: Normal in female. Abdomen: Abdominal sterna III to VI of female with normal ambulatory setae, VII with a pair of setae each side. Male genitalia: Unknown. Female genitalia: Not studied.

Dispersal potential

These beetles, as represented by the holotype, are macropterous and are capable of flight; they are slow runners, strong burrowers. However, both the Caribbean and Indian Ocean species are wing-polymorphic and perhaps with additional specimens, Halocoryza whiteheadiana may prove to be the same.

Way of life

Adults of other Halocoryza species are found on coralline sands in the intertidal zone of open beaches and among mangroves; a larva of the Indian Ocean species of this genus was found under dry seaweed just above the high-water mark on coralline sands. The single known specimen of Halocoryza whiteheadiana was collected at UV light on a sandy beach on the north shore of Isla Carmen, Baja California Sur. Adults of Halocoryza whiteheadiana are likely nocturnal halobiont predators, as are members of the other known species of this genus.

Other specimens examined

None.
