Larinus densicollis Desbrochers, 1897  

Larinus densicollis Desbrochers, 1897: 29  

In the description, Desbrochers indicates “Long. 8 mill.”, “Algẻrie, Mẻcheria, des chasses de M. le Docteur Chobaut qui a bien voulu me communiquer cette espèce et en enrichir ma collection d’un exemplaire,” “le ɗ, sur lequel a ẻtẻ faite cette description...” and at the end “l’exemplaire que j’ai sous les yeux est un peu frottẻ...”. That means he had a single specimen for this description (and maybe, Dr. Chobaut collected several specimens, but they cannot be considered as “ syntypes ”).

Type. The female holotype bears the handwritten labels “Mẻcheria”, “d. Chobaut”, “ densicollis Fr   6.97 m ”. and “ type ” and has been labelled “ Holotypus Ψ, Larinus densicollis Desbr., Gültekin & Perrin   des. 2005 ” [on red paper], “ Larinus cardopatii Lucas, L. Gültekin   det. 2005 ”. It is pinned through the right elytron near the base, slightly spreading apart the elytra, and the right mesothoracic leg is missing.

Remarks. The mention “Fr 6.97 ” is a reference to the description. Although the original description specified the specimen to be male, it is really female. Apparently, the secondary sexual differences were not recognized by Desbrochers when he had a single specimen (see above for Larinus distinguendus   ). Larinus densicollis Desbrochers, 1897   is conspecific with Larinus cardopatii Lucas, 1849   necessitating the following new synonymy: Larinus cardopatii Lucas, 1849   [= Larinus densicollis Desbrochers, 1897   syn. n.].
