status

 

Afronaso cuneiceps Fennah, 1957 , stat. n.

(figs 61, 62)

Afronaso rhinarius cuneiceps Fennah, 1957: 142

Populonia curculioforma Dlabola, 1987: 86 , figs 7, 8, syn. n.

Material examined: D. R. Congo: 1 Ƥ, Lolo Damvu, 19.IV. 1926, A. Collart ( IRSNB).

Note. The synonymy is based on comparison of the photos of the holotype of A. rhinarius cuneiceps (which is a female, contrary to Fennah (1957) who mentioned a male as holotype in his original description), deposited in the Royal Museum for Central Africa (Tervuren, Belgium), with the photos of the holotype of P. curculioforma , deposited in the Hungarian Natural History Museum (Budapest, Hungary). A. rhinarius cuneiceps Fennah clearly differs from A. rhinarius Jacobi by the short and narrowing apically metopial proboscis and laterally flattened hind tibiae (figs 61, 62).
