Agrilus pilosotibialis Descarpentries 

( Figs. 4DView FIGURE 4, 5KView FIGURE5)

pilosotibialis Descarpentries, 1958 

Descarpentries, 1958: 62–64.

Baudon, 1960: 221 (faunal records; Laos) [Note. Likely misidentification]. Baudon, 1961: 73 (faunal records; Laos) [Note. Likely misidentification]. Descarpentries & Villiers, 1963: 104, 108 (characters in key). Baudon, 1968: 134, 159 (characters in key; faunal records; Laos) [Note. Likely misidentification]. Bellamy, 2008: 2236 (world catalog).

Type material. Described from holotype and 1 paratype. Type locality. “ Cochinchine, Saigon ”. Type specimens. Holotype ♂ ( MNHN): “ Saigon [p] 17–XII –49 [h] J. Barbier [p] \ Agrilus pilosotibialis  m  . Holotype (♂) [p] A. Descarpentries det. [p]”. Secondary types: 1 PT (MNHN).

Distribution. Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh).

Remarks. Known only from type specimens. Agrilus pilosotibialis  is very likely conspecific with A. humilis  because of having the same, very distinctive aedeagus. The species differs only by minor differences in habitus like finer structure of pronotum and reduced elytral pubescence in distal part. Baudon (1960, 1961, 1968) cited this species from Laos. These records need verification to exclude misidentification with other similar species of the group and therefore they are not included in the distribution. See also remarks at A. humilis  .
