Distrigus Dejean, 1829


Subgenus Distrigus Dejean, 1829 

Abacetus (Distrigus) aenigma Chaudoir, 1869 

Chaudoir (1869 a) described this species from Hong Kong (Hang Hong sic.). Also listed for Hong Kong by Fairmaire (1889), Andrewes (1921 a), Hua (2002) and Bousquet (2003 b).

There is a fair number of individuals of this genus that could not be identified to species; it is possible that these belong to at least four taxa.
