Taxonomy: Niisima (1909) described X. septentrionalis  from three syntype specimens: one from Tayoroma (Teshio province), and two from Yoshino (Yamato province). One of the Yoshino specimens and the Tayoroma specimen were located in Niisima’s collection at NIAES. To ensure correct and consistent application of the name, we here designate the female specimen from Yoshino as the lectotype of Xyleborus septentrionalis Niisima. The  lectotype is labeled: “Yoshino [handwritten] Niisima [typed] \ [handwritten Japanese characters] \ Xyleborus septentrionalis  (XVI-1-154) n. sp. [handwritten] nach Y. Niijima [typed] \ [red label] LECTOTYPE Xyleborus septentrionalis Niisima  [typed]”. Female paralectotype (NIAES), hereby designated, labeled “26 [handwritten] \ XI01 [handwritten] \ Teshio Tayoroma [handwritten] Niisima [typed] \ No. 13 [handwritten] \ Xyleborus septentrionalis  (XVI-1-155) n. sp. [handwritten] nach Y. Niijima [typed] \ [yellow label] PARALECTOTYPE Xyleborus septentrionalis Niisima  [typed]”.

The description, lectotype, paralectotype and a non-type specimen of Xyleborus septentrionalis  were examined and are conspecific with specimens of X. pfeilii  in NMNH and RJR.
