Abstract

The soft-winged flower beetles genus Cerapheles Mulsant et Rey, 1867 and species C. terminatus (Ménétriés, 1832) are recorded for the first time for Ukraine (Lviv and Volyn Regions). The habitats and host plants of adults of this species are characterized. The main morphological differences of Cerapheles from the related genus Anthocomus Erichson, 1840, as well as the redescription of male and the brief characteristics of female of C. terminatus are provided based on the current approaches in the soft-winged flower beetles taxonomy. 5 figs, 1 tab., 18 refs.
