status

 

50. Beaverium lantanae (Eggers)  * n. comb.

Xyleborus lantanae Eggers, 1930: 180  .

Ambrosiodmus lantanae (Eggers)  : Wood & Bright, 1992: 675.

Thai distribution: (unspecified southern province) ( Sittichaya et al. 2012 as Beaverium sundaensis (Eggers))  ; S: Chumphon. New to Thailand.

New record: Chumphon, [no precise locality], EtOH trap, 1.v.2010 (W. Sittichaya) (1)  .

Other distribution: India (Karnataka, Nicobar Is., W. Bengal), Myanmar. (2)

Taxonomy: This species was recorded as Beaverium sundaensis (Eggers)  by Sittichaya et al. 2012), but further study of the specimen indicates that it is distinct from that species, and should be assigned to the species listed by Wood and Bright (1992), and redescribed by Maiti and Saha (2004), as Ambrosiodmus lantanae (Eggers)  . However, the species does not belong in Ambrosiodmus  , but has the morphological characters of Beaverium ( Hulcr & Cognato 2009)  . It is here transferred to that genus.

Biology: Recorded from six genera in five families in India ( Beeson 1961), and evidently polyphagous. The gallery system lies in one plane and is circumferential or bifurcate ( Beeson 1930).

Illustrations: D ( Maiti & Saha 2004 as Ambrosiodmus lantanae  ).
