Taxonomy

Forficulidae  , Forficulinae  , Forficula chopardi Hincks, 1947  .

Remarks

Steinmann (1993: 596), in the entry for F. chopardi  , cites ‘1947 Anechura chopardi  Hincks’ as the original described taxon. This should read ‘1947 Forficula chopardi  Hincks’. Hincks described Anechura chopardi  in 1958 ( Hincks 1958a: 185). Brindle (1973f: 270) transferred Anechura chopardi  to Forficula  with the new name F. borellii  ( F. chopardi Hincks, 1947  being the senior homonym). In Steinmann

1989c the two species, F. borellii Brindle, 1973  (p. 815) and F. chopardi Hincks, 1947  (p. 817) are clearly distinguished.
