A new Javanese species of the Buprestid genus Aphanisticus, Latr
The nearest ally of this species will prove to be A. paradoxus H. Deyr. from the island of Makian (Ann. Soc. Ent. Belge. VIII. p. 223, and p. 227, pl. 4 fig. 20). It has a length of about 3—3 1/2 mm, and is of a blackish bronze colour, bright bronze on the head and pronotum. — The whole insect is covered with an extremely fine and dense sculpture which is only visible with the aid of a lens of strong power.
