Xyleborus festivus Eichhoff 

Xyleborus festivus Eichhoff, 1876: 202  .

Xyleborus detectus Schedl, 1975a: 458  . syn. n.

Xyleborus pinicola Eggers, 1930: 206  . syn. n.

Xyleborus pinivorus Browne, 1980: 374  . syn. n.

Taxonomy: Wood and Bright (1992: 739) list syntypes of this species deposited in IRSNB. However, Eichhoff’s description includes only a single measurement suggesting the existence of only one type specimen. The holotype is housed in UHZM which sent photographs of the specimen. These were compared to images and paratypes of X. pinicola  , the holotype of X. detectus  (NHMW) and specimens in RAB that were compared to the holotype of X. pinivorus  (NHML) and which had previously been synonymized with X. pinicola ( Beaver and Liu, 2010: 32)  . All are conspecific and represent a single species.
