Agrilus ignicollis Deyrolle. The   lectotype was designated by Jendek (1998: 323). Subsequently, Jendek (2000: 503) proposed it as a synonym of A. coelestis   .

Type locality. [ Indonesia, Lesser Sunda Islands] I[sland]. Florès. Originally described from: “I. Florès et Timor”. The type locality becomes the place of origin of the lectotype ( ICZN, Article 76.2.).

Agrilus fructus Kerremans   , lectotype ɗ, BMNH, by present designation: “ Type [p] [round label with red border] \ Sumbawa Stauding. [leg.] [h] \ fructus Kerr.   Type [Kerremans' manuscript] \ A. fructus Kerrem. Sumbawa   [h] \ Kerremans 1903 ­ 59 [p]”. Number of syntypes unknown.

Type locality. [ Indonesia, Lesser Sunda Islands] Sumbawa [ Island] [8 ° 40 'S, 118 °00'E].

Agrilus sumbawanus Kerremans   , lectotype ɗ, BMNH, by present designation: “ Type [p] [round label with red border] \ Sumbawa Stauding. [leg.] [Kerremans' manuscript]] \ sumbawanus Kerr.   Type [Kerremans' manuscript] \ Kerremans 1903 ­ 59. [p]”. Number of syntypes unknown.

Kerremans (1903: 277) and Obenberger (1936 a: 1083) cited it erroneously as a “ sumbuanus ” in the synonymy of A. fructus   .

Type locality. [ Indonesia, Lesser Sunda Islands] Sumbawa [ Island] [8 ° 40 'S, 118 °00'E].

Agrilus lombokanus Kerremans   , lectotype, sex not examined, BMNH, by present designation: “ Type [p] [round label with red border] \ Lombok v 1.96 Doherty [leg.] [p] \ Lombokanus   Kerr. Type [Kerremans' manuscript] \ A. lombockianus [sic!] Kerrem. Lombock [h] \ Kerremans 1903 ­ 59. [p]”. Number of syntypes unknown.

Kerremans (1903: 277) proposed it as a synonym of A. fructus   , but together with Obenberger (1936 a: 1089) cited it erroneously as a “ lombockianus ”.

Type locality. [ Indonesia, Lesser Sunda Islands] Lombok [ Island] [8 ° 45 'S, 116 ° 30 'E].

Agrilus coelestis   variety leniens Obenberger, lectotype, sex not examined, NMPC, by present designation: “ Flores [h] \ TYPUS [p] [red label] \ A. coelestis v. leniens   m. Type [h] Det. Dr. Obenberger [p]”. Number of syntypes unknown. Although proposed as a variety of A. coelestis   the diagnosis does not unambiguously reveal that the name was proposed as an infrasubspecific entity, since the taxon was diagnosed also by morphological characters: “spina apicali breviore divergens”. Following ICZN, Article 45.6. 4, such a name should be deemed subspecific from the original publication.

Type locality. [ Indonesia, Lesser Sunda Islands] Flores [ Island] [8 ° 30 'S, 121 °00'E].

Remarks. Agrilus coelestis   is characterized by generally smaller size (6–8.6 mm), obliteration of pubescence and by sexual dichroism (see key to species).
