Brontispa castaneipennis ( Chûjô, 1937) 

( Fig. 13View FIGURES 12 – 19. 12)

Planispa castaneipennis Chûjô, 1937: 225  ; Barber, 1950: 246 (synonymy).

Type locality. Northern Mariana Islands, Saipan Island, Tanapaku [= Tanapag, approx. 15°14′S, 145°45′E, 10 m a.s.l.].

Original type series. Thirty specimens preserved in Kyushu University ( Japan) and Taihoku University ( Taiwan).

Type material examined. Syntype, glued: ‘ Saipan | MARIANNA ISLS. | 22.IV.1936 | Coll. S. ISSIKI [w, hw, cb] || CO | TYPE [w, p, cb, circular label with yellow frame and text] || Planispa  [hw] | castaneipennis  [hw] | Chûjô [hw] | DET.M. CHUJO [pink, p, cb] || BRONTISPA  [hw] | MARIANA [hw] | SPAETH [hw] | J.L.Gressitt- Det.19[p]50[hw] [w, p + hw by Gressitt, cb] || [vernacular name in Chinese, hw] || Brontispa  [hw] | mariana Spaeth  [hw] | det. Li-Zhong Hua [in Chinese, p] 1981 [hw] [w, p, cb] || En-289774 | [Data Matrix barcode] SYS [w. p, cb]’.

Current status. Synonym of Brontispa mariana Spaeth, 1937  .

Remarks. Chûjô (1937) did not select a holotype but mentioned all specimens as cotypes, therefore all must be considered as syntypes. Original description does not mention LMNH among depositories and the specimen was most likely exchanged by Gressitt.

Spaethʼs (1937) name has the priority as the description of B. mariana  appeared on 15th February 1937 (according to wrappers) while that of B. castaneipennis  in October 1937 (according to wrappers).
