Taylor & Francis
A new genus and a new species of subterranean water beetle are described as Iberoporus cermenius. This dytiscid beetle was collected by pumping out and filtering water from a well in southern Spain. Iberoporus belongs to the subfamily Hydroporinae and is possibly related to the genera Siettitia Abeille de Perrin, 1904 and Rhithrodytes Bameul, 1989. Notes on the biology of Iberoporus cermenius are given.
