( Figs. 12 View Figure 12 A–B, G, J)

Olethrius scabripennis Thomson, 1865: 577   . TL: Fiji Island. Lectotype in MNHN (examined).

Olethrius villosus Dillon et Dillon, 1952: 6   . TL: Fiji Island, Viti Levu, Nausori. Type in BISHOP (not examined). Synonymised by Vitali, 2008.

Stenodontes (Olethrius) tyrannus: Lameere, 1903b: 131   [partim].

Olethrius tyrannus var. scabripennis: Lameere, 1913: 15   ; Bigger and Schofield, 1983: 22.

Olethrius tyrannus: Vitali and Casadio, 2007: 4   .

Diagnosis. Olethrius scabripennis   can be recognised by the following combination of characters: the pronotal smooth sexual lateral area subquadrate, the medial area short and broad; the lateral carina of pronotum with numerous teeth and acutely produced; the elytra with dense coarse punctures and recumbent yellow pubescence. Male mandible without distinct longitudinal carina.

Type. Olethrius scabripennis Thomson.   Lectotype male in MNHN, with the following labels “Scabripennis Thoms. Type, s.c. Ap., Ils Fegee | Museum Paris Coll. J. Thomson 1952 | Th. TYPE”.

Material examined. Fiji: AM (1 ♂): Fulton College, N. of Suva, N. Poultet, Jan. 1975   ; ANIC (1 ♂): Viti Levu, Rakiraki, B.P. Moore, Nov. 1974   . New Caledonia: ANIC (1 ♀): Moindou, B.P. Moore, Jan. 1966   .

Remarks. According to Vitali (2008) O. scabripennis   is widespread from the southern Solomon Islands to Tonga, through Vanuatu, Fiji and New Caledonia, and it was also recorded from “ Australia ”, but no new material is available to confirm this.
