Polistes jokahamae Radszkowski 1887  [ Polistes (Gyrostoma) rothneyi Cameron 1900  ]

Judging from the Japanese name that he used for this nominal taxon, Sonan's (1943: 475) “ P. j o k a h a m a e ” seemed to be P. rothneyi  . Sonan (1943: 475) recorded the following localities: Heito, Hori, Karenko (Domon-Kiraikei), Koshun, Kotosho, Kuraru, Musha, Rikiriki in Choshu-gun (Takao Province), Rono in Kizan-gun (Takao Province), Shinchiku, Sozan and Taihoku. We have examined 58 Ƥ and 8 3 that have a label showing that Sonan identified them as P. jokahamae  ; they are from Bakulas, Heito, Hori (Horisha), Kagi, Karenko, Koshun, Kotosho, Kuraru, Musha, Rikiriki, Rimogan, Shinchiku, Sozan, Taihoku, and Tompo. All of these specimens were revealed to belong to P. rothneyi  .
