  • A remarkable new species of giant water scavenger beetle, Hydrophilus (Dibolocelus) harpe sp. nov., is described from Northeastern and Southeastern Brazil. Measuring nearly 5 cm in length, it is one of the largest species of Hydrophilidae in the world. It is superficially similar to Hydrophilus masculinus (Regimbart, 1901) but is differentiated from that species by the form of the male protarsal claw and tibial spurs. A lectotype for Hydrophilus masculinus is also designated.
