Figs. 7–8 View FIGURES 5 – 8 , 20 View FIGURES 17 – 20 .

Lixus carthami Olivier, 1807: 278   ; pl. 21, fig. 277.

Original description. " L. longirostris   , ovatus niger, cinereo pubescens, rostro   nigro carinato. Corpus ovatum, convexum, nigrum, pube cinereo-rufescente plus minusve tectum. Rostrum nigrum, longitudine thoracis, incurvum, a basi ad apicem vix carinatum. Thorax punctulatus basi congeneribus paulo latior. Elytra striatopunctata. Femora inermia."

Type locality. “ Egypte ”.

Types. In the Chevrolat collection in SMNH under the label “ Larinus carthami Ol.   type, Ent. V. 83, p. 278, p 21, f 277; Capiom. Leprieur 204 / 47, Aegyptus, ex. mus. Olivier” handwritten on blue paper, there is a female bearing the handwritten label “Chevrolat, Carthami   , type ”. This sample, matching both description and type locality, is here designated as the lectotype with: “ LECTOTYPUS Ƥ, Lixus carthami Olivier, Gültekin   des. 2010 ”, and identified as “ Larinus carthami (Olivier)   , Gültekin det. 2010 ”. The lectotype was pinned through the right elytron, but there is also a pin hole on the left one, and its fore right claw segment, right middle tarsus and left middle leg are lacking.

Remarks. The study of the type of L. carthami   and that of several other Larinus   types recently made by the first author made evident the following new synonymies: Larinus carthami ( Olivier, 1807)   [= L. crassus Capiomont, 1874   , syn. nov., L. griseotessellatus Capiomont, 1874   , syn. nov., L. breviusculus Desbrochers, 1892   , syn. nov.].
