Tribe Eurygeniini  LeConte, 1862

Eurygenius  sp.

Nikbakhtzadeh & Tirgari (2002) mentions Eurygenius  sp. (which is listed among members of the nonexistant “ Pedilidae  ”) from Hamedan Province. Taking into account the fact that Eurygenius LaFerté-Sénectère, 1849  is a New World genus and considering that the mentioned publication is full of unforgivable mistakes and identification errors (for example, Oedemeridae  is confused with Сerambycidae, Сantharidae with Сicindelidae, etc.—as determined from the published photographs), we do not take it seriously as a scientific paper and are consequently ignoring this record.
