Abstract[EN] The weevil Oromia thoracica n. sp. from Gran Canaria (Canary Islands) is described and compared to its closest allies. It can easily be distinguished by less sculptured elytra, its differently shaped antennal scrobe, and by the pronotum not constricted anteriorly and expanded over the head. Some ecological data are also provided, and considerations on the fauna occurring in the mesovoid shallow substratum (MSS) from the locality of this new species are made. Additional records and comments on other Oromia species as well as an identification key to the species of the genus are given.
[ES] Se describe la nueva especie de gorgojo Oromia thoracica n. sp. de Gran Canaria (Islas Canarias) y se compara con sus congéneres. Se distingue fácilmente por los élitros menos esculpidos, la diferente conformación de la escroba antenal, y por el pronoto no constreñido anteriormente y proyectado sobre la cabeza. Se proporcionan datos ecológicos y algunas consideraciones sobre la fauna presente en el medio subterráneo superficial (MSS) de la localidad típica donde se colectó la especie. Además, se aportan nuevos datos de distribución, comentarios faunísticos y una clave de identificación de las especies de este género.
