Allantus centrorufus Mocsáry, 1909


Allantus centrorufus Mocsáry, 1909 

A valid subspecies, Tenthredo (Tenthredo) jakowlewi centrorufa (Mocsáry, 1909)  .

TYPES. Allantus centrorufus Mocsáry, 1909: 21  . Syntypes Ƥ 3, “Turkestania: Saty-Ashu”. Lectotype 3, hereby designated ( Fig. 7View FIGURE 7). Type locality: “Turkestan”, “Saty-Ashu” [=? Kyrgyzstan, Alatau: Saty, River Asu].

DISCUSSION. In the collection of the HNHM two syntypes (Ƥ 3) were found. As the female no longer has antennae, the male is hereby selected as lectotype ( Fig. 7View FIGURE 7) (Ƥ paralectotype, same data as the lectotype). The status of the taxon is still under discussion. In agreement with Zhelochovtsev (1976), Taeger (1992) treated it as a subspecies of T. jakowlewi (Jakowlew, 1891)  from Tian Shan, whereas Lacourt (1999) considered centrorufus  without further explanation as a synonym of this species.
