A new

Trox

species,

T. jeanae

Scholtz and Inward, is described from Thailand. The new species belongs to the

Trox opacotuberculatus

species-group, a mainly eastern Palaearctic group consisting of 12 species. Habitus drawings of the

T. jeanae

adult and male genitalia are provided. All members of the species-group are re-examined, a map of species distribution and a tabulated key to the group is provided, and their male genitalia illustrated. The biogeography of the trogid genera

Trox

and

Omorgus

is discussed and contrasted. We suggest that

T. jeanae

sp. nov. is a relict species, persisting in a tropical region where it is now quite isolated from most other members of the predominantly Palaearctic

T. opacotuberculatus

species-group.
