Allantus rufipes Mocsáry, 1909 

A senior objective synonym of Tenthredo (Tenthredo) carna Enslin, 1912  .

TYPES. Allantus rufipes Mocsáry, 1909: 20  . Syntypes Ƥ, “Turkestania: Montes Alai”. Lectotype Ƥ, hereby designated ( Fig. 32View FIGURE 32). Type locality: “Alai mont.” [= Alai, mountain range in Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan]. Secondary homonym of Tenthredo rufipes Say, 1824  [= Tenthredo leucostoma (W. Kirby, 1837)  ].

= Tenthredo carna  Enslin, 1912 b: 104. Replacement name for Allantus rufipes Mocsáry, 1909  .

DISCUSSION. Taeger (1992) distinguished the species from the very similar Tenthredella eximia  Kuznetzov- Ugamskij, 1927 (= Tenthredo kuznetzovi Taeger & Blank, 1996  ), secondary homonym of T. eximia Norton, 1868  , and noted the existence of two female syntypes without selection of a lectotype. One of these specimens is hereby designated as lectotype ( Fig. 32View FIGURE 32). The paralectotype has the same data.
