Hans Fery, Jiří Hájek
Hydroporus toubkal sp. nov. of the H. longulus species group is described from the High Atlas, Morocco. The new species is similar to H. longulus Mulsant & Rey, 1861, H. nevadensis Sharp, 1882 and H. jacobsoni Zaitzev, 1927. From these three species, H. toubkal sp. nov. can be distinguished with certainty only by the shape of the median lobe of aedeagus. The habitus and the male and female genitalia of the new species are illustrated. Figures of the aedeagi of H. jacobsoni, H. longulus and H. nevadensis are provided for comparison.
