Number: 413, Pages: 1 - 7

Apatrobus hekosanus sp. n. is described from Mt. Hekosan, Central Honshu, Japan. This species is readily distinguished from all adjacent congeners by the shape of the pronotum and structure of the male endophallus. The relationships among the new and adjacent related species were inferred from interspecific differences in morphology and habitat altitude, and knowledge of the differentiation process of other congeners.
