Gabrius osseticus (Kolenati)  

( Figs 4 –6 View FIGURES 1 – 6 , 19–20 View FIGURES 19 – 40 , 43– 44 A, 53, 58, 63, 64)

Body length: 3.70 –4.0 mm (mean 3.90 mm); body width: 1.40–1.80 mm (mean 1.60 mm); head width: 0.7–0.8 mm (mean 0.8 mm); pronotum width: 1.3–1.6 mm (mean 1.5 mm), about as broad as long; body stocky, moderately and weakly sclerotized. Antennae not extending to middle of elytra length ( Fig. 5 View FIGURES 1 – 6 ). Anterior margin of pronotum with 10–12 projections (5 /5, 5/5, 5/6, 6/6, 6/ 6 projections on sides in individuals). Wings protruding on the posterior margin of 1 st (morphologically 3 rd) clearly visible, abdominal segment as in P. atratus   and P. carbonarius   ( Figs 4, 5 View FIGURES 1 – 6 , 7, 8, 10, 11 View FIGURES 7 – 12 ). Each fore, middle and hind tibiae with 5, 9, and 4 protuberances respectively. Tarsi of hind legs almost reaching to half of the length of 4 th (morphologically 6 th) clearly visible abdominal segment ( Figs 4, 5 View FIGURES 1 – 6 ). Abdomen moderately and gradually widened from segment II to IV and narrowed to the terminal segment of the body ( Fig. 6 View FIGURES 1 – 6 ). Abdominal tergites with microstructure ( Fig. 19 View FIGURES 19 – 40 A). Abdominal segments VII and VIII each bearing a pair of setiform projections on sides ( Figs 4–6 View FIGURES 1 – 6 ). Abdominal segments VII about 1.3 x longer than projections ( Fig. 19 View FIGURES 19 – 40 ); abdominal segments VIII almost as long as projections ( Fig. 20 View FIGURES 19 – 40 ). Terminal sternite of female pupae with two well developed ventral, elongated, and slightly curved inside prolongations (Figs 43, 43A) or short denticles (Figs 44, 44A). Male pupa with sternite IX very similar in structure to B. fimetarius   (Fig. 42); ventral and terminal prolongation with sharp cuticular processes apically (Figs 43 A, 43 B). The first pair of functional spiracles transverse, distinctly wider than long ( Figs 53, 58 View FIGURES 52 – 70 ); atrophied spiracles as in Figs 63, 64 View FIGURES 52 – 70 .
