Type material. Agrilus trito Deyrolle, 1864  . Described from inexplicit number of specimens (ST). Type locality: “Singapoor”. Type specimens: Lectotype designated by Jendek (1998).

Agrilus albopunctatus Deyrolle, 1864  . Described from inexplicit number of specimens (ST). Type locality: “Singapoor”. Type specimens: Lectotype designated by Jendek (1998).

Agrilus nepos Kerremans, 1900  . Described from inexplicit number of specimens (ST). Type locality: “Bornéo”. Type specimens: Lectotype designated by Jendek (2005).

Agrilus obenbergeri Gebhardt, 1925  . Described from inexplicit number of specimens (ST). Type locality: “Borneo. Matang”. Type specimens: Lectotype designated by Jendek (2001).

Examined specimens. MALAYSIA. Pahang. Cameron's Highlands, No 4, camp.; 04°25'33”N, 101°23'09”E; 6-1923; alt. 1460 m; 1 (USNM) ( Jendek & Nakládal 2019 as albopunctatus Deyrolle, 1864  ). Sarawak. Kuching; 01°34'N, 110°18'E; 1 ♂ (EJCB).

Distribution. MALAYSIA: Pahang, Sarawak; SINGAPORE.

Remarks. The lectotypes of A. trito  (♂) and A. albopunctatus  (♀) beside sexual differences (more robust body in female), differ only in the extent of tomentose elytral spots. While A. albopunctatus  has distinct apical pair and vaguely also medial one, A. trito  has spotless elytra. The poor state of the type of A. trito  suggests that tomentose spots are likely smeared secondarily which is common in improperly killed or kept specimens. Both taxa were described in the same publication but the name priority was given to the name trito  due to the male type and page precedence.
