Two new species of subterranean Anillini belonging to genus Speleotyphlus Jeanne, 1973 (Coleoptera, Carabidae)
Speleotyphlus comasi n. sp. and S. virgilii n. sp. from two caves Cueva del Turcacho (Teruel province) and Cova Bonica in Ulldecona (Tarragona province) are described. The former was collected in 1981 and was a female. Despite several attempts the male was not found. Only one other species S. fideli Viñolas & Escolà has been described for the province of Teruel but S. comasi clearly differs regarding the shape of the elytra and umbilicate series. S. virgilii n. sp. is very similar to S. fadriquei Español, 1999 but is slightly larger and the pronotum is transverse rather than elongated as in S. fadriquei Español.
