Özet

The new tenebrionid genus Taurohelops Keskin and Nabozhenko, new genus (tribe Helopini), including two species from Central Taurus Mountains, Turkey, is described. The new genus belongs to the Cylindrinotus genus-group but differs from other genera of the tribe Helopini by structures of the male tibiae, abdominal ventrites 3-5, male aedeagus, and presence of coeloconic sensilla on the pronotum. One new combination is established: Taurohelops incultus (Allard, 1877), new combination (from Odocnemis Allard). One new species, Taurohelops triplehorni Keskin and Nabozhenko, new species, is described. A lectotype for Helops lordiscelis Reitter, 1900 is designated. Data on distribution, bionomics and morphology of the two species of Taurohelops are given.
