Here is a specimen for which I'm unable to give any genus name.
VIII-2007
China, Shanxi, Datong
about 15mm (including head & pygidium)
Any help is welcome.

It is female of Manthiteus, probably M. murzini.. Grave beetle.

Sorry for my haste... This Genus is named Mantitheus (Philinae, Philini).
From Schanxi to cited is M. pekinensis Fairm., 1889 (widespread in China) and M. taiguensis Wu & Jiang, 2000

Thanks to both of you. I will find the work of Vives to confirm (if possible) murzini & will let you know as soon as possible.

Our mails crossed. I will, of course, also include the other species of this small genus.

After exchanging mails with E. Vives & through the description of murzini, it appears the pictured specimen does not belong to murzini. M. Vives thinks it is probably a female of Mantitheus pekinensis Fairmaire.
Thanks a lot to all of you.
