Polistes mandarinus  var. eboshinus Sonan 1943  [ Polistes (Polistella) eboshinus Sonan 1943  ]

Sonan (1943: 483) described Polistes mandarinus  var. eboshinus  based on 62 Ƥ and 5 3 from Arisan, Bakulas, Baron in Shinchiku Province, Bukai in Taichu Province, Doba (foot of Taiheizan), Eboshi (foot of Taiheizan), Funkiko, Karenkou, Matanguru in Taitou, Musha, Oiwake (Musha), Rarasan, Rikiriki in Takao Province, Saukan in Taiheizan, and Taiheizan, but he neither gave any collection data of each specimen nor designated the holotype. Starr (1992) referred to type materials housed in TARIAbout TARI, mentioning “ types examined: holotype Ƥ, 7 paratype Ƥ, 2 paratype 3 ”. As Starr (1992) did not give any data that specify the specimen that he referred to as “ holotype ”, his statement does not constitute valid lectotype designation [Article 74.5 of the Code ( ICZN 1999)].

In TARIAbout TARI, we located 54 Ƥ and 6 3 that are, judging from the collection data and attached Sonan's identification labels, from the type series. However, the number of the male specimens (six) is larger than that given in Sonan (five). Eight Ƥ and 2 3 that possess Type / Paratype /Allotype labels could be the specimens that Starr (1992) referred to as type materials. The type series certainly included two distinct species; the species to which the specimens marked with asterisks belong might be “sp. A” in Starr (1992) and could be an undescribed species.
