Type material examined. Holotype Piperius pini Hopkins, 1915   : PHILIPPINES • 1 ♀: Luzon : Baguio; labeled: “ Baguio // Luzon // P.I /// Pinus insularis   ////C. V. Piper   coll.//// 10. V.11 ////9136a Hopk. US //// USNMENT01356854 //// Type No. 7603 //// Piperius pini Hopk.   ////Leg mounted//// Antenna mounted//”; 1911-10-04 [According to Hop- kins 1915, does not match label]; ( NMNH).  

Discussion. Piperus pini Hopkins, 1915   is widely accepted as a junior synonym of C. sylvicola   ( Wood 1986; Wood & Bright 1992; Johnson et al. 2020a) citing Schedl (1963b). However, this was an error from poor word choice and incorrect translation.After stating that Ericryphalus henshawi Hopkins, 1915   was identical to Hypothenemus sylvicola Perkins, 1900   , Schedl states that Piperius pini   is placed in an equal position [‘eine gleiche Stellung’], the position referring to the genus rather than the species. Schedl listed P. pini   as valid in a later catalogue of the Philippine fauna ( Schedl 1966), and the species was not treated in any later publication.

The holotype clearly differs from C. sylvicola   by the hair-like setae on the pronotal disc, as well as overall shape and proportions. There are several similar Pinus   feeding species in East Asia. No other Cryphalus   is known to feed on both conifers and angiosperms, and this taxonomic change rejects Pinus   as a known host for C. sylvicola   .
