status

 

Herophydrus ovalis Gschwendtner, 1932 

Herophydrus ovalis Gschwendtner, 1932: 263  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.) ovalis ( Thunberg, 1784: 19)  , which was originally published in the binomen Dytiscus ovalis  . The latter name is currently treated as subjective junior synonym of Hygrotus (Leptolambus) impressopunctatus ( Schaller, 1783)  . Additionally, Thunberg's name is an invalid junior primary homonym of Dytiscus ovalis Ström, 1768: 328  (which is a nomen dubium); however, both names are available names and enter into homonymy.

According to Biström & Nilsson (2002: 60), Hygrotus (s. str.) wahlbergi ( Omer-Cooper, 1956: 363)  —published in the binomen Herophydrus wahlbergi  —is a subjective junior synonym and is hereby taken to substitute Gschwendtner's name.
