Abstract

A new antlion (Neuroptera Myrmeleontidae Myrmeleontini), Myrmeleon almohadarum sp. nov., is described from southern Spain and Tunisia. The new taxon is closely related to the mostly sympatric M. inconspicuus Rambur and M. mariaemathildae Pantaleoni, Cesaroni & Nicoli Aldini but differing in body pattern, wing venation and larval chaetotaxy. The validity of the new species is also supported by a phylogenetic analysis based on COI sequences. The larva of this new species is described and compared with congeners. M. almohadarum appears to be associated with sandy environments.
