M. BAEHR: A new species of Dolichoctis SCHMIDT-GÖBEL, 1846, subgenus Spinidolichoctis BAEHR, 1999, from New Britain (Papua New Guinea) (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Lebiini), p. 1-7
A new species of the lebiine genus Dolichoctis SCHMIDT-GÖBEL, 1846 (Coleoptera: Carabidae: Lebiini), D. ludewigi, is described from the island of New Britain, Bismarck Archipelago (Papua New Guinea). It belongs to the subgenus Spinidolichoctis BAEHR, 1999 and is outstanding within this sub- genus due to the presence of an anterior supraorbital seta. From the two described species, D. bisetosa BAEHR, 1999 and D. bisetosiceps BAEHR, 2013, which bear the same setae, it is distinguished by the combination of the following character states: moderately produced eye, different shape and structure of pronotum, elongate elytral apical spine, and shallow elytral striae. The new species is added to the most recent key to the subgenus Spinidolichoctis BAEHR, 1999.
