Abstract

Omalorphanus new genus is described to include the new species O. aenigma from the Cascade Range of Oregon. The species is tentatively assigned to the subfamily Omaliinae, tribe Anthophagini; the characters on which this assignment is based and the morphological features that distinguish it from other Omaliinae are thoroughly discussed.

Résumé

Omalorphanus, un nouveau genre, est décrit pour y inclure la nouvelle espèce, O. aenigma, de la chaîne des Cascades, en Oregon. L’espèce est placée dans la sous-famille des Omaliinae, tribu des Anthophagini; elle possède, cependant, un certain nombre de caractères exceptionnels qui rendent la présente classification provisoire. Les auteurs donnent les raisons pour lesquelles le nouveau genre est classé chez les Anthophagini ainsi que les caractères morphologiques qui permettent de le distinguer des autres Omaliinae.
