Rifkind J. 2023. Two new species of Guatemalan Colyphus Spinola (Coleoptera: Cleridae: Clerinae). Insecta Mundi 1003: 1–4.
Colyphus zacki new species and Colyphus monzoni new species (Coleoptera: Cleridae: Clerinae) are described from Guatemala.
The genus Colyphus Spinola was most recently revised by Ekis (1977), who recognized 16 species, distributed from Mexico to Panama. Since then, four new species have been described (Colyphus hansoni Rifkind, C. ska Rifkind and Barr, C. lamed Rifkind, and C. martinezi Rifkind) and four species (Enoclerus guatemalensis (Gorham), E. pictus (Gorham), E. rutilus (Gorham), and Thanasimus subviolaceus Gorham) have been transferred to the genus (Rifkind and Barr 2011; Rifkind 2014). With the two new species described herein, the total known Colyphus fauna now numbers 26 species.
