Diagnostic description

Holotype, male (Fig. 41a). Length 2.39 mm. Color black; elytral base and legs dark ferruginous, antenna light ferruginous. Body subovate, with shallow constriction between pronotum and elytron; in profile almost evenly convex. Rostrum scabrous, basally with indistinct median ridge; epistome forming angulate ridge. Pronotum moderately densely punctate. Elytra with striae marked by small punctures; interval 4 basally with cluster of few narrow, cream-colored, recumbent scales; interval 7 subapically forming indistinct ridge. Meso- and metafemur with anteroventral ridge distinctly dentate. Meso- and metatibia in basal half widened; dorsal edge basally denticulate; subapically narrowed; uncus large, peg-shaped. Metafemur with serrate dorsoposterior edge, subapically without stridulatory patch. Venter subglabrous, concave. Aedeagus (Fig. 41b) with sides of body in apical third converging, apex rounded; orifice retracted; endophallus weakly granulate; transfer apparatus symmetrical, heart-shaped frame relatively thin; ductus ejaculatorius without bulbus. Intraspecific variation. Length 1.75–2.39 mm. Female rostrum dorsally subglabrous, sparsely punctate; epistome simple.

Distribution

Manokwari Reg. (Mt. Meja, Arfak Mts). Elevation: 200–685 m.

Biology

Sifted from leaf litter in lowland forest.

Etymology

This epithet is a combination of the name Ixodidae and the Latin suffix -formis (having the form of) and refers to the species´ superficial resemblance with ticks.

Notes

Trigonopterus ixodiformis Riedel, sp. n. was coded as “Trigonopterus sp. 222” by Tänzler et al. (2012)[1].
