Allantus fulvicornis Mocsáry, 1909 

A junior subjective synonym of Tenthredo (Tenthredo) brevivertex brevivertex  (Konow, 1905 b). Synonymy by Zhelochovtsev (1976 a).

TYPES. Allantus fulvicornis Mocsáry, 1909: 20  –21. Syntypes 11 Ƥ, “Alai”. Secondary homonym of Tenthredo fulvicornis Mocsáry, 1909  [= Tenthredo crenata (Enslin, 1912)  ]. Lectotype Ƥ, hereby designated ( Fig. 17View FIGURE 17 – 19. 17). Type locality: “Alai mont.” [= Alai, mountain range in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan].

= Tenthredo candida Enslin, 1912: 104  . Replacement name for Allantus fulvicornis Mocsáry, 1909  .

DISCUSSION. According to Mocsáry (1909), A. fulvicornis  was based on 11 Ƥ. As already noted by Taeger (1988 a), not 11 but 12 Ƥ of fulvicornis  were found in the HNHM collection. There is no reason to exclude any of these specimens from the type series of fulvicornis  . The lectotype of fulvicornis  ( Fig. 17View FIGURE 17 – 19. 17) has sterna and terga 2 and 6 almost entirely black. The 11 specimens now remaining (all labelled as paralectotypes) show a rather wide variation in the extent of the pale colouration: the antenna may become rather dark ( Fig. 18View FIGURE 17 – 19. 17) and the abdomen much more extensively marked with yellow ( Fig. 19View FIGURE 17 – 19. 17).
