H. discretus ( Eichhoff, 1878a)  stat. rev.

C. discretus Eichhoff, 1878a  ; C. discretus Eichhoff, 1878b  , syn. n.; Cryphalus scabricollis Eichhoff, 1878b  , syn. n.; C. brevisetosus Schedl, 1943  , syn. n.

The specimens determined to be this species clearly differ from H. dilutus  by the pronotal disc ( H. dilutus  containing scale like setae, compared to H. discretus  , C. scabricollis  and C. brevisetosus  which have only slightly flattened setae with pointed tips) and by the absence of the mesofemoral spine (absent in the type of H. discretus  , which is a male and the mesofemur is clearly visible). The name

H. scabricollis ( Eichhoff 1878b)  , as well as C. discretus Eichhoff, 1878b  are now considered junior synonyms because the descriptions by Eichhoff (1878a), which include only C. discretus  and C. dilutus  , precede the description by Eichhoff (1878b) cited in Wood and Bright’s (1992) catalog. We also found minor differences between specimens previously determined as C. discretus  and C. scabricollis  : C. discretus  specimens seemed to have smaller asperities and a taller body shape than specimens of C. scabricollis  . However, insufficient material was available for extensive review, and taxonomic changes among these are beyond the scope of the study.
