Abstract

Revision of the genus Aegidium Westwood, 1845, of the Lesser Antilles (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae, Orphninae, Aegidiini). Aegidium parvulum Westwood, 1846, from Guadeloupe, A. vincentiae Arrow, 1903, from St Vincent and A. dominicense (Cartwright & Chalumeau, 1977) from Dominica are redescribed. A. chalumeaui n. sp. from Guadeloupe and A. dierkensi n. sp. from Martinique are described. The five species are illustrated. Two identification keys are provided, one for the neotropical genera and one for the Aegidium species of the Lesser Antilles.
