status

 

Amigus nigroadspersus (Bolivar, 1907) 

Material examined. Morocco, Marrakech, 21 ♂, 5 ♀ syntypes (MNCN); 30 km N Marrakech 14. IV.1995, 3 ♂, 2 ♀ (BMCP).

Bolivar (1914) established nigroadspersus  as the type-species of this genus; I agree with La Greca (1993) who moved again this species to the genus Amigus  , previously synonymized with Paraeumigus  by Dirsh (1958). The shape of the pronotum, tegmina, prosternal tubercle and genitalia ( Figs. 146–148View FIGURES 123 – 148. 123 – 145) consent to establish that it is not related to Paraeumigus  nor to Euryparyphes  , but to Acinipe  and related genera; thus, it belongs to the tribe Pamphagini  .
