Hebrus vaillanti Poisson, 1953 

( Figs. 27View FIGURES 23 – 28. 23 – 24, 72View FIGURE 72)

Hebrus vaillanti Poisson, 1953: 67  . Syntypes: 1 ♂ 3 ♀, Algeria: Akrouk (1 ♂ 1 ♀), Amaïs (2 ♀) ( USNM). 

Material examined. MOROCCO: Massa River, 30 km NE Tiznit, 27. and 29.vii.1959, 162 spec. (Ƌ ♀), Eckerlein lgt., P. Kment det. ( NMPC)  ; Tamegroute env., 540 m a.s.l., 14.iv.2012, 1 Ƌ, P. Krásenský lgt. ( ZJPC)  .

Distribution ( Fig. 72View FIGURE 72). North Africa: Algeria (south-east): Tassili Mts. ( Poisson 1953), Morocco (new record). Afrotropical Region: Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Nigeria (all Linnavuori 1981). New species for Morocco.

Comment. The parameres of the species were illustrated by Linnavuori (1981). The species differs from H. montanus  and H. pusillus  by the nearly completely brown clavus and male metatibia without long erect setae.

No depository of the types was mentioned in the original description (Poisson 1 953). Andersen (1995) indicated the type depository as MNHN in Paris, but a subsequent search for the types was unsuccesfull (E. Guilbert, pers. comm.). The collection at the USNM in Washington includes four card-mounted and two slidemounted specimens: ‘I found two slides of H. vaillanti  , one with only the antennae and the labelled “ H. vaillanti  n. sp., something [can’t read], Tassili, Antennae, female symbol.”, the second slide has the male genitalia under one cover slip and the hemelytra and three legs under the other and the labels “ Hebrus vaillanti  n. sp., male symbol; and + 2 hemelytra, female symbol [I presume the hemelytra and legs belong to the female], Tassili, F. Bernard, st- 14 et 20.” There are also four carded specimens, two on each of two pins. One male and one female are on one, and two females are on the other. There is no locality data, but one has the number 14 and the other 20 (and one has Tassili, Bernard)’ (T. J. Henry, pers. comm).
