New: Paramogoplistes ortini

Roy Kleukers - 18 July 2015

The Iberian material previously identified as Mogoplistes brunneus proves to belong to three species. Earlier Paramogoplistes dentatus was described and in this paper an additional species is described: Paramogoplistes ortini. It is known from Andalucia and Extremadura and could very well occur in Portugal
