status

 

Falsocaenia germaini ( Pic, 1931)   stat. n.

Idiopteron (Falsocaenia) irregularis var. germaini Pic, 1931: 94   .

Type material. Syntype, male, ‘Bolivia’, without other data (MNHN).

Other specimens examined. Bolivia: Yungas, Germain, 2 spec. ( ZMPA).  

Diagnosis. Close to F. meridanum   , differs in body coloration having whole maxillary and labial palpi dark brown, lateral margins and posterior angles of pronotum yellow, elytra mostly yellow, each elytron having a dark median dot (while F. meridanum   has a transverse black stripe) and black apex, and in the shape of male genitalia (parameres almost as long as phallus, reaching considerably over distal phallic constriction.

Comments. Recently, Bocakova et al. (2012) revised the genus Falsocaenia   and redescribed “ Falsocaenia irregularis Pic, 1931   ” based on the Bolivian syntype of Falsocaenia irregularis var. germaini   . Unfortunately, these authors overlooked that Falsocaenia irregularis   was transferred ( Nascimento & Bocakova 2009) to Lycomorphon   , based on the type from Peru—the original type locality of Lycomorphon irregularis ( Pic, 1931)   .Consequently Falsocaenia irregularis var. germaini Pic, 1931   is elevated to species rank, as the holotype of the subspecies represents an undescribed species of a different genus.
