Genus Callistoides Motschulsky, 1865 

Callistoides deliciolus (Bates, 1873) 

Bates (1873 a) described this species from Japan. A junior synonym Callistoides cyaniceps  ( Bates 1873 b) was described from Hong Kong and listed for Hong Kong by Gemminger & Harold (1868), Chaudoir (1876 b) and Thaxter (1902). Material: 1 ex. Hong Kong, Lantau, Sunset Peak, 24.vi.06 at circa 640 altitude in scrubby grassland; 1 ex. W.T.L., 1.vii. 14; Ƌ+♀ W.T.L., 10.vii. 13. Biology: Imago found June – July. Probably lives in high altitude grasslands. Attracted to light and fully winged.

Callistoides guttula ( Chaudoir, 1856) 

Chaudoir described this species from Hong Kong specimens given to him by Dohrn. Also listed for Hong Kong by Chaudoir (1876 b), Gemminger & Harold (1868), Mroczkowski (1960), Darlington 1968 and Kirschenhofer (2003 a). Andrewes (1926) notes a specimen of a junior synonym of this species Chlaenius cuspidatus Heller 1923  from Hong Kong.

Callistoides pericallus ( Redtenbacher, 1867) 

Redtenbacher described this species from Hong Kong and appears to have used two names to describe it. In the text under species 77 he describes Chlaenius pulcher Redtenbacher, 1867  . However in the illustrations of species 77 it is Chlaenius pericallus Redtenbacher 1867  followed with a bracket and the word " pulcher  antea", antea being 'former' in latin. Redtenbacher makes no other mention of pericallus  , however Andrewes (1924) explains the name pulcher  was pre-ocupied by Nietner. Kirschenhofer (2003 a) treats pulcher  as junior synonym. Also listed for Hong Kong by Gemminger & Harold (1868), Bates (1873 a), Chaudoir (1876 b), Fairmaire (1888 b) and Kirschenhofer (2003 a).
