Subgenus Pachydinodes Kuntzen, 1919 

Chlaenius (Pachydinodes) hamifer Chaudoir, 1856 

Chlaenius bihamatus Chaudoir, 1856 a  junior synonym of this species was described from specimens originating in Hong Kong, and is listed under that name by Chaudoir (1876 b) and Bates (1889). Andrewes (1919 a) questioned whether these specimens originated from Hong Kong "when C. bihamatus  was described (Bull. Mosc. 1856, iii, 210). Chaudoir said he had received two examples taken by Capt. Boys in N. India, and another from Tranquebar; C. hamifer  (I.c. 209) was said to come from Java. In the Monograph (Ann. Mus. Civ. Gen. 1876, 62) he tells us that he has two examples of C. bihamatus  from Java and one from Hong-Kong, while G. hamifer  now inhabits " toute la presqu'ile Cisgangetique." It is evident to me that in 1856 he transposed the localities, but no word of this appears in the Monograph, where the necessary rectification is made.Listed as occuring in Hong Kong by Saha et al. (1992). Material: 1 ex. Hong Kong, Lantau, Pui O, 18.iii.09, under stone; 2 exx. Hong Kong, Lantau, Pui O, 20.iii.07, under stone; Sight record 1 ex.

Chlaenius (Pachydinodes) leucops Wiedemann, 1823

Chlaenius (Pachydinodes) pictus Chaudoir, 1856
