Larinus villosicollis Desbrochers, 1892  

Larinus villosicollis Desbrochers, 1892 b: 91  

In the description, Desbrochers indicates “Ψ. Long. 7 (rostro excluso); lat. 4 mill.” and “J’ai rapportẻ cette espẻce des environs d’Alger” [which means “I brought back this species from the neighbourhood of Alger ”].

Type. The female holotype bears the handwritten labels “Hussein­Dey, Desbrochers, 1889 ”, “ westringi ”, “ type ” and “ villosicollis   ” and has been labelled “ Holotypus Ψ, Larinus villosicollis Desbr., Gültekin & Perrin   des. 2005 ” [on red paper]. The specimen is glued on a card and in good state.

Remarks. The locality “Hussein­Dey” fits with the description (“aux environs d’Alger”): it is at about 6 km south­east of Alger.

Larinus villosicollis Desbrochers   belongs to the subgenus Phyllonomeus Gistel   , being closely related to Larinus westringii Capiomont, 1874   and Larinus filiformis Petri, 1907   . It differs from both of these by short rostrum, the whitish hairs on the elytra forming two indistinct longitudinal stripes, and clothed with dense semi­erect greyish hairs along the lateral margins of pronotum.
