Polistes olivaceous  (!) ( De Geer 1773) [mostly Polistes (Gyrostoma) jokahamae Radoszkowski 1887  ]

Sonan (1943: 477), listing Polistes hebraeus ( Fabricius 1787)  and P. okinawensis Matsumura & Uchida 1926  as junior synonyms of P. o l i v a c e u s, stated that this species was common in lowland areas all over Taiwan Island. He listed, as example localities of its occurrence, Heitou, Kagi, Koshun, Rimogan in Bunsan-gun, Souzan and Taihoku. Starr (1992) regarded Sonan's “ P. olivaceus  ” as P. jadwigae Dalla Torre  [= P. jokahamae  ; see Kojima and Hagiwara (1998)]. We have examined 21 Ƥ and 11 3 in TARIAbout TARI that were identified as P. o l i v a c e u s by Sonan; they are from Ako, Hokoto (or Bokoto or Hookoto), Horisha, Kagi, Koshun, Nanto, Rimogan and Taihoku. All of them except one P. rothneyi  Ƥ from Kagi were revealed to belong to P. j o k a h a m a e.
