Type material. Agrilus humilis Kerremans, 1895  . Described from inexplicit number of syntypes. Type locality. “Ille Bodjo”. Type specimens. Lectotype ♂ (BMNH): “TYPE [p] [round label with red border] \ I. Bodjo Weyers [h] \ humilis Kerr.  Type [h] \ Kerremans 1903 –59 [p] \ A. humilis Kerrem. Bodjo  [h]”. Lectotype designated by Jendek (2007).

Agrilus tantillus Kerremans, 1896  . Described from inexplicit number of syntypes. Type locality. “Sumatra”. Type specimens. Lectotype ♀ (BMNH): “TYPE [p] [round label with red border] \ Sumatra, Manuf.Tabacs [h] \ tantillus Kerr.  Type [h] \ Kerremans 1903 –59 [p] \ A. tantillus Kerrem.  Sumatra [h]”. Lectotype designated by Jendek (2007).

Examined specimens. MALAYSIA. Pulau Pinang: 1 ♂ ( EJCB): “Malaysia: Bumbong Lima, Butterworth Penang, 8–x –1972, G  . V. Manley ”. SINGAPORE. 1 ♀ ( ZRC): “Singapore, NeeSoon pipeline  , CLF & CYW, 31/8/ 2008.

Distribution. Indonesia (Sumatra); Malaysia (Pulau Pinang); Singapore.

Remarks. Agrilus humilis  belongs to species with expanded proximal part of aedeagus ( Tab. 1) ( Fig. 5GView FIGURE5) and particularly close to A. pilosotibialis  which has the same obvious membranous lobes on apex of parameres ( Fig. 5KView FIGURE5). Both species are likely conspecific, but they are tentatively treated separately due to limited number of available specimens from distant localities. See also remarks at A. pilosotibialis  .
