A new species of Blepharum

A new downloadable ebook. Check it out!

Blepharum sp. I just received feedback from Chuck Bellamy, an authority on world Buprestidae that two of the specimens I sent to him a couple of months ago for identification are definitely new to Science.

These are of the genus Blepharum and he will be describing it. The closest species to this specimen is from Malaysia, Blepharum leopardum FISHER. However, he hinted that its possible that this can be a related but new genus. If that’s the case, then I’m more than happy!

Its definitely good to know that there are still many new species to discover in the country.
