Subgenus Tachylopha Motschulsky, 1862 

Tachyura (Tachylopha) ovata ( Motchulsky, 1851) 

Schaum described a junior synonym of this species Tachyura albicornis Schaum, 1860  from a specimen collected by Bowring in Hong Kong. Also listed for Hong Kong by Gemminger & Harold (1868), Andrewes (1919 a) and Kopecky (2003). Andrewes (1928) draws attention to a specimen in Motschulsky's collection, originating from Bowring and dated 7.xii. 51, bearing a double sided label, on one side (not in Motschulsky's handwriting " Tachys albicornis Schaum  , Hong Kong " and on the other probably in Chaudoir’s writing " Bemb callipygum  Chaud". Material: 1 ex. Hong Kong, Lam Tsuen valley, 2.i. 12, (leg. Jason Maté); 1 ex. W.T.L., 31.v. 15; 2 exx. W.T.L., 24.vi. 15. Biology: Imago found January and May to June. Andrewes & Scott (1924) commented it was found under stones in Macao, though the only recent Hong Kong record from a habitat was found on the grassy bottom of a narrow, shallow drainage ditch. Can be attracted to light.
