Archetypus marginatus   sp. nov.

( Figs. 4 View Figure 4 H–K, 14D View Figure 14 , 15G View Figure 15 , 16C View Figure 16 )

Diagnosis. Male of A. marginatus   sp. nov. can usually be separated from the Papuan A. fulvipennis   by the median carina deeply impressed anteriorly, forming shallow groove while joining the frontoclypeal depression (median groove is indistinct anteriorly in A. fulvipennis   ). Otherwise this species differs from the Papuan congener by its reddish-brown head and pronotum, the elytra always pale yellow with dark brown margin and the inner apical angle angulate (with weak spine in A. fulvipennis   ). It is restricted to northern Australia.

Description. Male. Body length 29–37 mm; Body sub-parallel, head length about 0.7 times width; mandibles as long as head capsule; pronotum as long as head and slightly broader than head; elytra 3 times of head length. Antennal scape 1.5 times of antennomere 3 length; interobital width 4 times of eye length. Prosternal process moderately broad, as wide as the length of procoxal cavity, and 2 times of hypomeron width; mesoventral process broader than prosternal process. Abdominal ventrite 1 being the longest, about twice length of ventrite 2; ventrite 5 slightly shorter than 4. Metatarsomeres 1–3 length ratio as 2:1:1; tarsomere 5 slightly longer than 1–3 combined.

Female. Body length 26–34 mm; mandibles shorter than head capsule; pronotum slightly shorter and broader than head; elytra over 5 times of pronotum length.

Etymology. The species name is derived from the Latin word “ marginatus   ”, which indicates the dark margin on elytra of this new species.
