Larinus hierolosymae Desbrochers, 1896  

Larinus hierolosymae Desbrochers, 1896: 66  

In the description, Desbrochers indicates “Long. 10 mill. (rostro excluso)” and a region, with a town “ Syrie, Jẻrusalem” [in 1896, Jerusalem was a city of Syria, in Ottoman Empire]; the unique specimen is the holotype.

Type. The female recognized as holotype bears the handwritten labels “Jerusalem”, “ hierosolymus m., Fr. 5.96 ” and “ type ” and has been labelled “ Holotypus Ψ, Larinus hierosolymae Desbr., Gültekin & Perrin   des. 2005 ” [on red paper]. It is pinned through the right elytron and complete.

Remarks. The mention “Fr. 5.96 ” is a reference to the description. The description is published with a mistake: the latin name for Jerusalem is Hierosolyma. The name Larinus hierolosymae   printed in the publication, and also in the Coleopterorum Catalogus, is an “incorrect original spelling” (probably printer error). It is the reason why we propose here an emendation: the species is named Larinus hierosolymae Desbrochers, 1896   (the handwritten label by Desbrochers uses the good root “ hierosolymus ”). The species belongs to the subgenus Phyllonomeus Gistel   , and is similar to Larinus orientalis Capiomont, 1874   , but differs thinner and more shining rostrum, with longitudinal indistinct stripes on 2 nd – 4 th and 9 th – 10 th elytral intervals and lateral margins of pronotum forming by greyish hairs.
