Download Full Text
Itamus deuvei, sp. nov. is described from Tan Phu, near Ho Chi Minh City, southern Vietnam, based on seven specimens collected in a lava tube system. It is the second troglophile species of the genus Itamus Schmidt-Göbel and is easily distinguished from I. cavicola (Moore), the other troglophile from Papua New Guinea, by its more elongate body, longer antennae, head without a supraorbital setiferous pore, and very shallow and impunctate elytral striae.
