Revision of the Genus Malporus Casey (Coleoptera: Anthicidae: Anthicinae)
The North American genus Malporus Casey is revised for the first time. Three species are found in the eastern North America, and are most commonly collected in riparian areas or in salt marshes: M. cinctus (Say), M. formicarius (LaFert6-Senectere), M. properus Casey. A new species from the Southwestern United States, M. werneri, is described, and M. blandus Casey is here placed as a junior synonym of M. properus, new synonym. Anthicus fornicarius LaFert6-Senectere is designated as the type species of Malporus.
