Genus Gymnochilus Eichhoff, 1868  

Gymnochilus glaber (Schedl, 1951)  

= Scolytodes schoenmanni Wood, 2007   . New

synonymy.

Cusco:Marcapata ( Wood 2007). Junín:Satipo (Río

Venado vill.), 1,500–1,600 m, A. Petrov (APP-4).

Comments. Gymnochilus glaber   was regarded as a member of Scolytodes   by Wood (2007) because of its 6-segmented funicle, “ Scolytodes   structure”- type of pronotum, and “lack other essential characters”. Because Scolytodes glaber   is preocupied by Scolytodes glaber Eichhoff ( Eichhoff 1868)   , Wood (2007) proposed a new replacement name, Scolytodes   shoenmanni, for Hexacolus glaber Schedl. Alexander Petrov   studied the male holotype of G. glaber   in NMW and made a slide mount of the antenna. On the slide, it was obvious that the funicle is 7-segmented, not 6-segmented. The " Scolytodes   structure" of the pronotum is a poor character to base generic placement as the pronotal form in such a morphologically diverse genus as Scolytodes   differs significantly. In addition, the form and coloring of the pronotum, stout body, and elytral vestiture with bristles are quite characteristic of Gymnochilus   .
