Another Eustathes sp.?


A new downloadable ebook. Check it out!

It seems that there are still many uncommon species that can still be found in my collection that I have just featured lately. Vives will be describing a new species from Mindanao, Eustathes mindanaonis in an upcoming paper (Eustathes sp. in this post) but when I checked my Astathini specimens, another surprising Eustathes comes up.

Its coloration is yellowish compared to E. mindanaonis. The first four segments of its antenna are not solid black but with brown coloration and its pronotum, especially the lateral parts is more acute compared to the softer, more rounded form of the latter. Can this be another, undescribed species that might be the third Eustathes to occur in the country?
