  author={H. L{\"u}er},
A teratologic case is described in a female of the beetle species Eucaliga sanguinicollis Fairmaire & Germain, 1861 (Coleoptera: Tenebrionidae: Alleculinae) collected in the Malleco Province, Chile (37°49’40” S; 73°00’35” W). The specimen exhibits meiomelia in both antennae, characterized by the lack of three and one antennomeres in the right and left antennae, respectively. The possible causes of the origin of these malformations are discussed.
