Abstract
Eleven new species of Afrotropical Rutelinae are described: Mimela jolyi sp. nov. from Ghana
and Ivory Coast, Anomala bouyeri sp. nov. and Popillia hecqi sp. nov. from Democratic
Republic of Congo, Adoretus mourgliai sp. nov., A. paulyi sp. nov. and A. (Chaetadoretus)
bjornstadi sp. nov. from Kenya, A. maini sp. nov. from Guinea, A. drumonti sp. nov. from
Zambia, A. (Chaetadoretus) mckameyi sp. nov. from Tanzania, Prodoretus snizeki sp. nov.
from Kenya, Pr. nathani sp. nov. from Malawi, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Mozambique
and Republic of South Africa. They are compared to the close species. Anomala denuda
Arrow, 1899 is proposed as a junior synonym of Anomala tibialis Lansberge, 1886. Popillia
(Costapopillia) viridiaurata Benderitter, 1927 is proposed as a junior synonym of Popillia
princeps Harold, 1878. A lectotype is designated for each of the following species: Mimela
rufoprasina Ohaus, 1902, Anomala denuda Arrow, 1899, Popillia princeps Harold, 1878,
Costapopillia viridiaurata Benderitter, 1927 and Adoretus similis Benderitter, 1922. The new
name Adoretus nathanlimbourgi nom. nov. is proposed to replace Adoretus nathani
Limbourg, 2014 (nec Frey G., 1971). Male genitalia illustrations and photographs of habitus
are provided.

Rutelinae africains
Introduction
Recent accession of many specimens of unidentified Afrotropical Rutelinae by the
Department of Entomology of the Royal Belgian Institute of Natural Sciences, and study of
material from differents institutions or private collections allowed to describe most of the
species in this work. This paper is a continuation of a global work on Afrotropical Rutelinae,
eleven new species are described in different genera, it will be useful to make new
subdivisions of groups of species.
Material and methods
Abbreviations used for measurements:
LB: length of the body measured from apex of elytra to middle of anterior margin of pronotum.
lB: breadth of the body measured at level of half of elytra length.
LE: length measured from apex of elytron to anterior margin of humeral calli.
lE: breadth, elytra taken together, measured at half length.
lP: maximal breadth of pronotum in dorsal view (hind angles for Popilliina and Mimela and Prodoretus nathani;
lateral angles for Anomala and Adoretini).
LP: length of pronotum measured on median line.
The breadth of the head is measured from the external margin of eyes.
Lectotypes are designated in order to stabilize the nomenclature in this group, following the Article 74.7.3 of the
International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN, 1999).
All male specimens have been dissected (except indications). The wording of each label of typical material is
limited by [ ]. For figures, scale = 1 mm.

COMMENTS
After examination of types of A. tibialis Lansberge, 1886 and A. denuda Arrow, 1899 it
appears those are conspecific.
DISTRIBUTION. Widespread, currently known from Senegal to Democratic Republic of Congo
and Zambia.
BIOLOGY. Specimens from Republic of Benin were collected in secondary forest (pers. com.
A. Coache).
The species was collected from January to December.

Aedeagus: in lateral view, apex of right paramere
ventrally sinuate to apex and slightly widened; in
dorsal view, left paramere with a lateral perpendicular
process to apex (Figs 25-26).

apex ventrally hooked and strongly widened; in dorsal
view, left paramere without a lateral perpendicular
process to apex (Figs 27-28).

COMMENTS
The subgenus Costapopillia Benderitter, 1922 is characterized by the marked costae of elytra.
Popillia princeps Harold, 1878 does not belong to this subgenus because this species is very
variable, costae are sometimes marked or not.
DISTRIBUTION. Currently known from Democratic Republic of Congo to Angola and Zambia.
BIOLOGY. The species was collected nearly all year round, with data from February to
November.

The new name Adoretus nathanlimbourgi nom. nov is here proposed to replace Adoretus
nathani Limbourg, 2014 . The latter name was preoccupied by Adoretus nathani FREY, 1971, a
species described from Coimbatore in the Nilgiri Hills (S. India) and dedicated to the priest
Susan Nathan (Frey, 1971).

straight from base to middle part,
angular to apex, two times sinuate
ventrally; in dorsal view,

laterally slightly sinuate; strongly
notched to apico-internal angle
(Figs 83-84).

Aedeagus: in lateral view,
ventrally slightly sinuate; in dorsal
view, parameres relatively parallel
from base to apex, longer and
narrower; uniformly rounded from
base to apex; apex strongly
notched (Figs 87-88).
