scientific name

Maximus verrucosus ( Gebler, 1829 )
status

 

Maximus verrucosus ( Gebler, 1829)  

resurrected as valid species from synonymy with Brachyrhinus granulatus Fischer von Waldheim, 1821   stat. res. (LT of M. verrucosus   examined, photograph in WCC).

Remarks. Chromosomus fischeri (Fåhraeus, 1842)   is a name currently used for a well-known species widespread in central Asia. However, it has a senior synonym, Brachyrhinus granulatus Fischer von Waldheim, 1821   . The synonymy between B. granulatus   and C. fischeri   has been generally recognized, at least since Faust (1904: 208) but, for unknown reasons, the correct priority was never adopted. In CPC B. granulatus   was erroneously referred to the genus Maximus   , as the senior synonym of M. verrucosus   .
