Diagnostic description

Holotype, male (Fig. 15a). Length 3.34 mm. Color black, legs deep ferruginous, antenna lighter ferruginous. Body ovate; almost without constriction between pronotum and elytron; in profile evenly convex. Rostrum dorsally tricarinate, with distinct median and pair of lateral carinae. Pronotum densely punctate. Elytra densely punctate; strial punctures slightly larger than minute punctures on intervals; striae impressed as fine lines; lateral stria behind humeri simple, not deepened. Femora edentate. Metafemur with denticulate dorsoposterior edge; subapically with stridulatory patch. Mesotibia simple, in basal half dorsal contour denticulate, but without distinct angulation. Metatibia with minute premucro; without suprauncal projection. Aedeagus (Fig. 15b) apically subangulate; dorsum sublaterally sparsely setose; transfer apparatus dentiform, short; ductus ejaculatorius with bulbus. Intraspecific variation. Length 3.31–3.34 mm. No female specimen available.

Material examined

Holotype (MZB): ARC1794 (EMBL # HE616071), WEST NEW GUINEA, Jayawijaya Reg., Bokondini, S03°41.787', E138°40.229' to S03°41.778', E138°40.129', 1705–1710 m, 17-VII-2010. Paratype (SMNK): 3 exx, ARC1795 (EMBL # HE616072), ARC2347 (EMBL # HF548203), ARC2348 (EMBL # HF548204) same data as holotype.

Distribution

Jayawijaya Reg. (Bokondini). Elevation: ca. 1705–1710 m.

Biology

Beaten from foliage of montane forest.

Etymology

This epithet is based on the Latin adjective conformis (like, similar) and refers to the similarity of this species, both to some closely related sibling species, and to others of only superficial resemblance.

Notes

Trigonopterus conformis Riedel, sp. n. was coded as “Trigonopterus sp. 86” by Tänzler et al. (2012)[1].
