SILUSINA  Fenyes 1918

Coenonica Kraatz 1857 

Coenonica Kraatz 1857: 45  . Type species: Coenonica puncticollis Kraatz, 1857  , by monotypy. Notes: Coenonica  is a nearly worldwide genus with about 180 valid species, one of which is adventive in New Zealand.

Coenonica puncticollis Kraatz 1857 

Coenonica puncticollis Kraatz 1857: 46  . Type locality: Colombo. Type depository: SDEI? #? ST; FMNHAbout FMNH 1 ST?. Note: New Zealand (at Mahana, 1956) in NZACAbout NZAC. Distribution: Oriental, New Guinea, Tahiti, Tanzania, Madagascar, Mauritius, Réunion, Seychelles; intro. Australia, Europe, Egypt, USA, Guyana, Ecuador, Brazil, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Grenada, St. Vincent, Cayman Is., New Zealand (NN (intro)).

Silusa Erichson 1837 

Silusa Erichson 1837: 377  . Type species: Silusa rubiginosa Erichson, 1837  , by monotypy. Notes: Silusa  is a nearly worldwide genus with about 49 valid species, including two that are endemic to New Zealand.

Silusa parallela Bernhauer 1943 

Silusa (Stenusa) parallela Bernhauer 1943: 170  . Type locality: Neuseeland ("Fundort nicht lesbar") [published]; Curiosity Gully [ ST label]. Type depository: BMNH LT; FMNHAbout FMNH 1 PLT (designated below). Distribution: New Zealand (MC).

Remarks. Bernhauer did not indicate the number of specimens in the Broun collection he examined of this species.

In order to stabilize this name a lectotype and paralectotype are here designated for the two syntypes we found of

Silusa (Stenusa) parallela  .

Type material examined. Lectotype ( BMNH): card-mounted, “ Type [round label with red border] // New

Zealand. [red underline] Broun Coll. Brit. Mus. 1922 - 482. // Curiosity 9.8. 1912. [in Broun’s hand] // 6? Segmt.

Silusa puber (Broun 1880) 

Gyrophaena puber Broun 1880: 90  . Type locality: Parua. Type depository: BMNH HT ♂. Note: synonymy and placement in Silusa  by Klimaszewski & Crosby (1997: 262) (after Hammond pers. comm.). Distribution: New Zealand (AK,CL,ND,RI,TO,WA,WN,WO; DN,FD,MC,NN,OL,SL).

= Aleochara semifusca  Broun 1894: 385. Type locality: Mount Pirongia. Type depository: BMNH 1 ST, 2 ST. Note: synonymized by Klimaszewski & Crosby (1997: 262) (after Hammond pers. comm.).

= Silusa (Stenusa) Arrowi  Bernhauer 1941: 38. Type locality: Kiwi Bush. Type depository: BMNH LT; FMNHAbout FMNH 1 PLT (designated below). Note: synonymized by Klimaszewski & Crosby (1997: 262).

Remarks. The holotype of Gyrophaena puber  and one syntype of Aleochara semifusca  in BMNH were confirmed

and labelled by J. Klimaszewski in Klimaszewski & Crosby (1997). Bernhauer did not indicate the number of

specimens examined for naming Silusa (Stenusa) arrowi  . In order to stabilize this name a lectotype and one

paralectotype are here designated for the two syntypes of Silusa (Stenusa) arrowi  .

Type material examined. Lectotype ( BMNH): card-mounted, “ Type [round label with red border] // New

Zealand. [red underline] Broun Coll. Brit. Mus. 1922 - 482. // Kiwi Bush 4.5. 1915. [in Broun’s hand] // not – 164.
