The designation of Anodius denticulus  Motschulsky, 1863 as a synonym of this species (Mandelshtam and Nikitskij 2010) is not considered valid (Alonso-Zarazaga pers. comm.). Wood designated a specimen of Xyleborus perforans  as the lectotype of Anodius denticulus  , not a specimen of X. similis  (although they occurred on the same pin).
