Quedius (Raphirus) humeralis   STEPHENS, 1832

Quedius humeralis STEPHENS, 1832: 220   .

Quedius   oblitteratus ERICHSON, 1840: 549.

Quedius   coxalis KRAATZ, 1858: 59 f.; nov.syn.

Quedius   atticus COIFFAIT, 1967: 408 f.; nov.syn.

T y p e m a t e r i a l e x a m i n e d: Lectotype ♂ [dissected prior to present study]: "Graecia / Typus / coxalis mihi / Coll. Kraatz / Gestroi mihi, det. E. Gridelli / Dtsch. Ent. Inst. Eberswalde / G. Fagel elig. 1968, Quedius   coxalis Kr. Lectotype / DEI Müncheberg Col - 10021 / Quedius humeralis Stephens   , det. V. Assing 2018 " ( SDEI).  

C o m m e n t: The original description of Q. coxalis is based on several syntypes ("nicht gerade selten") from "Athen" ( KRAATZ 1858). There is, however, only one syntype in the Kraatz collection. This specimen, a male, was examined and designated as the lectotype by FAGEL (1968b). COIFFAIT (1967) described Q. atticus based on a male holotype and seven paratypes (a male and six females) from "Mont Pantélique près d'Athénes". Quedius   atticus was synonymized with Q. coxalis by COIFFAIT (1977).

An examination of the lectotype of Q. coxalis revealed that it is conspecific with the widespread and common Q. humeralis   . Hence, both Q. coxalis and its junior synonym Q. atticus are placed in synonymy with this name.
