Prosopocoilus yangi Fukinuki has been rediscovered from central China and is redescribed with male and female genitalia illustrated. A similar species, P. simianshanus new species, is described from Chongqing, central China. Prosopocoilus reni new species is described from Hainan, China. Taxonomic notes are given for Kirchnerius guangxii Schenk, Prosopocoilus astacoides (Hope) and Prosopocoilus duplodentatus Benesh. Three new synonyms are presented: Prosopocoilus Hope = Kirchnerius Schenk new… Expand
Junior Synonym of Prosopocoilus blanchardi (Coleoptera: Lucanidae) Proposed by the Integrated Taxonomic Approach
TLDR
The integrated approach to analyze the phylogenetic, genetic, geographic, and morphological data among Prosopocoilus reni, P. blanchardi, and some allied taxa showed that the key diagnosed character of P. reni should be phenotypic variation as a tropical island population. Expand
The mitochondrial genome of a rare Chinese stag beetle Kirchnerius guangxii (Coleoptera: Lucanidae)
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses showed that Kirchnerius guangxii was sister to the clade of Epidorcus gracilis and Serrognathus platymelus, and had a relatively low genomic affinity to Prosopocoilus. Expand
