Following Recommendation 69A.10 of the ICZN (1999), Brachydema lamberti Fairmaire, 1884   is hereby designated as the type species of Brachydema   .

Sparophysa Burmeister, 1855   . Burmeister (1855: 442) established the new subgenus Sparophysa   (currently a junior synonym of Pachydema Laporte, 1832   ) for two species: Pachydema bullata Burmeister, 1855   and Pachydema immatura Burmeister, 1855   , without designating the type species. Following Recommendation 69A.10 of the ICZN (1999), Pachydema bullata Burmeister, 1855   is hereby designated as the type species of Sparophysa
