Type species

Scolopostethus forticornis Gross, 1965, by present designation.

Description

Body elongate oval, dull, extensively punctate, dorsally glabrous (Fig. 3).
Head pentagonal, with dense fine punctures. Eyes small, very prominent. Ocelli well developed, located very far from each other, near the eyes. Antenniferous tubercle curved laterally. Antenna very robust, subclavate.
Pronotum without anterior collar, transversal furrow deep, disk densely punctured. Anterior and posterior margins straight, lateral margin concave, explanate but not widened at transversal furrow. Anterior lobe more globose in male, lateral margin partially parallel here. Scutellum elevated at middle. Fore wing. Clavus with 3 regular rows of punctures. Corium evenly and densely punctate, nearly parallel, costal margin only slightly concave subbasally, apical margin straight. Thoracic sternum punctate except submedian parts of mesosternum. Legs robust, fore femur strongly incrassate, especially in male, with two rows of spines and a very large spine in inner row.
Abdomen with dense decumbent pilosity, lateral portion of intersegmental suture between sternites IV–V curved anteriorly, not reaching lateral margin and sublateral furrow; trichobothrial pattern as typical in Drymini.

Included species

The genus is apparently not monotypic, because besides of the type species very probably congeneric specimens were seen at least from Java, Kalimantan and the New Hebrides.

Discussion:

The type species of Malipatilius gen. n. was originally placed into the genus Scolopostethus. The diagnostic characters of the two genera are presented in Table 1. A typical Scolopostethus species, Scolopostethus ornandus Distant, 1904 is imaged for comparison on Fig. 4. Faelicianus Bergroth, 1918, is perhaps the sister genus of Malipatilius gen. n. This genus has a pale wide lateral carina on pronotum, which is broadened at transversal impression, therefore the pronotum is evenly convex laterally. The antenna is also slender, much more than even in Scolopostethus. Another known genera of Drymini, e.g. the superficially similar Salaciola Bergroth, 1893, which sometimes has similar colour and explanate pronotal carina, are certainly not closely related.
Etymology. Patronymic, named after and dedicated to Mallik B. Malipatil, recognizing his excellent contributions to various groups of Australian Heteroptera, particularly Rhyparochromidae. Gender masculine.

Table 1. Diagnostic characters of Malipatilius gen. n. and Scolopostethus.
Character Malipatilius gen. n. Scolopostethus
Eye hind margin straight rounded
Antennal segment I surpassing apex of head short, less than half length of segment longer, more than half length of segment
Length: width ratio of antennal segment III ~3.5 more than 5
Colour of pronotum unicolorous dark (sometimes posteriorly slightly paler) tricoloured
Lateral margin of pronotum invariably dark always pale on middle
Pronotal margin at transverse furrow virtually not widened; strongly concave distinctly widened, straight or slightly concave
Anterior pronotal lobe of male in side-view strongly emerging, approximately as high as posterior margin slightly emerging, nearly evenly sloping
Transversal furrow deep shallow
Posterior pronotal margin straight concave
Scutellum in side-view convex flat
Number of rows of punctures on clavus 3 (inner row sometimes incomplete) 3.5–4
Punctures on corium even and dense inner part with smooth parts
Apical margin of corium straight slightly S-shaped
