Genus Broscus Panzer, 1813

Broscus davidianus Fairmaire, 1888

Fairmaire (1888 a) described Broscus davidianus from specimens in his collection originating in Hong Kong and Yunnan. Dejean described B. punctatus from specimens collected by M. Klug on Mount Sinai (having visited this mountain in the centre of the Sinai peninsula in Egypt, I find it hard to believe that the same species can occur in Hong Kong). Andrewes (1919 a) and Andrewes (1935), treat this as a well marked form of B. punctatus and is listed under that species as occurring in Hong Kong by Bousquet (2003 a) and Häckel et al. (2010). Roig-Juñent (2000) examined both taxa and lists Broscus davidianus Fairmaire, 1888 a separately. Hua (2002) lists Broscus davidianus Fairmaire, 1888 a .
