Herophydrus reticulatus Pederzani & Rocchi, 2009 

Herophydrus reticulatus Pederzani & Rocchi, 2009: 84  was transferred to genus Hygrotus  subgenus Hygrotus  (s. str.) by Villastrigo et al. (2017b). Thus, this name became a junior secondary homonym of Hygrotus (s. str.) reticulatus (Fabricius, 1792: 200)  which was originally published in the binomen Dytiscus reticulatus  and is accepted since long as subjective junior synonym of Hygrotus  (s. str.) versicolor ( Schaller, 1783).

Since no synonym of reticulatus Pederzani & Rocchi  exists, the name must be substituted by a new replacement name. This is why I hereby substitute the invalid name Hygrotus (s. str.) reticulatus ( Pederzani & Rocchi, 2009)  by the new replacement name Hygrotus  (s. str.) laticollis nom. nov. The new specific name is an adjective in the nominative singular and relates to the broad pronotum of the species.

Notes: Thanks are due to the authors of Herophydrus reticulatus, Fernando Pederzani  (Ravenna, Italy) and Saverio Rocchi (Florence, Italy), for agreeing in the substitution name being published here
