Larinus cylindrus Hoffmann, 1963  

Larinus cylindrus Hoffmann, 1963: 88  

Current status: Lixus cylindrus ( Hoffmann, 1963)   is a junior homonym of Lixus cylindrus (Fabricius, 1791)   . It is a valid species and is now known as Lixus isfahanensis   nom. n.

Type. In Hoffmann’s collection at MNHN is a specimen (probably female) mounted on card bearing the handwritten labels: “Ispahan, 1959, Iran, G. Remaudière”, “ Larinus (Larinorhynchus) cylindrus   m. A. Hoffmann det.”, “ Holotype (unique)” on red paper. According to the original description the type locality is “ Iran ”.

Remarks. Larinus cylindrus   is a member of the genus Lixus Fabricius, 1801   as Lixus cylindrus ( Hoffmann, 1963)   comb. n. The name is a junior homonym of Lixus cylindrus (Fabricius, 1781)   , and the new replacement name Lixus isfahanensis   nom. n. is here proposed. Lixus isfahanensis   is closely related to Lixus kraatzi Capiomont, 1875   , but it is a larger species.
