Philonthus carbonarius (Gravenhorst)  

( Figs 10 –12 View FIGURES 7 – 12 , 26–32 View FIGURES 19 – 40 , 47– 48 A, 55, 66)

Body length: 4.29–4.95 mm (mean 4.7 mm), female 4.57–4.95 mm (mean 4.81 mm), male 4.29–4.73 mm (mean 4.60 mm); body width: 1.93–2.20 mm (mean 2.00 mm), female 2.00– 2.22 mm (mean 2.1 mm), male 1.91–2.10 mm (mean 2.00 mm); head width: 1.06–1.19 mm (mean 1.13 mm); pronotum width: 1.39–1.65 mm (mean 1.53 mm), 1.1 x as broad as long; body rather stocky and weakly sclerotized. Head about 1.2 x as long as wide ( Figs 10, 11 View FIGURES 7 – 12 ). Antennae protruding middle of elytra length ( Fig. 11 View FIGURES 7 – 12 ). Anterior margin of pronotum with 10–13 projections (females– 5 /5, 7/6, 6/6, 7/6, 5/ 6 projections, males– 6 /6, 6/6, 5/6, 6/6, 6/6, 6/6, 6/ 6 projections on sides in individuals). The wing length as in G. osseticus   and P. atratus   ( Figs 4, 5 View FIGURES 1 – 6 , 7, 8, 10, 11 View FIGURES 7 – 12 ). Each fore, middle, and hind tibiae with 1, 9, and 4 protuberances respectively. The length of hind legs as in P. a t r a t u s ( Figs 7, 8, 10, 11 View FIGURES 7 – 12 ). Abdominal segments II–IV almost equal in width, than narrowed to the terminal segment of the body ( Fig. 12 View FIGURES 7 – 12 ). Abdominal segments III–VIII each with a pair of setiform projections (6 pairs in total) on sides ( Figs 10–12 View FIGURES 7 – 12 ). Segments III–VI more than four (4.3–4.5 x) as long as projections ( Figs 28, 31 View FIGURES 19 – 40 ); projections on segments VII and VIII, 3– 4 x longer than on the other segments; projections on segment VII only about 1.5 x shorter than segment, projection on segment VIII curved, slightly longer than segment ( Figs 26, 30 View FIGURES 19 – 40 ). All abdominal projections on sides bearing cuticular processes ( Figs 27, 29, 32 View FIGURES 19 – 40 ). Abdominal segments with microstructure as in Fig. 26 View FIGURES 19 – 40 A. Female pupa with two well-developed ventral, elongated, straight prolongations (Fig. 47); sternite IX of male pupa as in Fig. 48; ventral and terminal prolongation with tiny cuticular processes (Figs 47 A, 48 A). The first pair of functional spiracles slightly narrowed to the apex, with strongly-marked reticulate microstructure ( Figs 11, 12 View FIGURES 7 – 12 , 55 View FIGURES 52 – 70 ); atrophied spiracles as in Fig. 66 View FIGURES 52 – 70 .
