Duvalius (sg. Neoduvalius) gejzadunayi sp. n. from Pećina u Dubokom potoku cave (Donje Biševo village near Rožaje, Montenegro), the first known representative of this subgenus from the territory of Montenegro is described, illustrated and compared with the related species of the subgenus Neoduvalius Müller, 1913. This new species is characterised by depigmented, medium sized body, totally reduced eyes, deep and complete frontal furrows, 3-4 pairs of discal setae in third elytral stria, as well as by the shape of aedeagus. Data on the distribution and the ecology of this remarkable species, as well as a check-list of the subgenus Neoduvalius are also provided. Recently described genera Serboduvalius Ćurčić, S. B. Pavićević & Ćurčić, B.P.M., 2001, Rascioduvalius Ćurčić, S. B. Brajković, Mitić & Ćurčić, B.P.M., 2003, Javorella Ćurčić, S. B. Brajković, Ćurčić, B.P.M. & Mitić, 2003 and Curcicia Ćurčić, S. B. & Brajković, 2003 are regarded as junior synonyms of the genus Duvalius Delarouzée. © Roman Lohaj et al. Source

Two new genera of cave-dwelling aphaenopsoid Trechini beetles, Jalzicaphaenops gen. nov. poljaki sp. nov. from Dumenčića špilja (cave) near Rakovica (central Croatia) and Acheroniotes gen. nov. mlejneki sp. nov. from pits on Prekornica mountain range (central Montenegro) are described and illustrated. Both new genera are characterized by the presence of posterior pronotal setae, Jalzicaphaenops gen. nov. also by the presence of a pair of setae on pronotal disc. The key to the identification of all hitherto known aphaenopsoid Trechini genera from Dinarids is given. Data on the distribution and ecology of these remarkable genera, complemented with descriptions of the type localities are also provided. Source

Scotoplanetes aquacultor n. sp. from the »Vodna jama« pit (Dragaljsko polje near Grahovo, southwest Montenegro), second known species of the genus is described, illustrated and compared with the congeneric species Scotoplanetes arenstorffianus Absolon, 1913. Based on the examination of the holotype, Scotoplanetes arenstorffianus weiratherianus Noesske, 1928 is reconsidered in synonymy to Scotoplanetes arenstorffianus. Data about the taxonomy of this remarkable genus, complemented with the description of habitat and the bionomy are given. Source
