Trachytes Michael, 1894 

Trachytes Michael, 1894: 297  .

Trachynotus Kramer, 1876: 74  (junior homonym). Type species Trachynotus pyriformis Kramer, 1876: 74  , designated by Michael, 1894: 293.

Notes. Trachytes Michael, 1894  was a replacement name for Trachynotus Kramer, 1876  , which is a junior homonym of Trachynotus Latreille, 1829  ( Coleoptera  ). When it was originally described, Trachytes  included two species— Celaeno aegrota Koch, 1847  and Trachynotus pyriformis Kramer, 1876  . Camin (1953) reported that Michael (1894) had designated pyriformis  as the type species of Trachynotus  . This would automatically mean that pyriformis  is also the type species of Trachytes  . Johnston (1961) also stated that Michael (1894) had designated pyriformis  as the type species of both Trachynotus  and Trachytes  . Camin and Johnston appear to be referring to Michael's statement (1908: 293) that Trachynotus pyriformis Kramer, 1876  "may well be the type of a separate genus". Some authors report that the type species of Trachytes  is Celaeno aegrota Koch, 1847  , but this was adequately refuted by Camin (1953). The genus name Trachynotus  has been incorrectly spelled as Trachinotus  and Trachynothus  by some authors.
