Stephanocleonus Motschulsky, 1860
status

syn. n.

Paraleucochromus Obst, 1908 synonym of

Stephanocleonus Motschulsky, 1860   syn. n.

; consequently, P. pleurocleonoides Obst, 1908   transferred to genus Stephanocleonus   as

Stephanocleonus pleurocleonoides (Obst, 1908)   comb. n.

Remarks. According to the description, the type of P. pleurocleonoides Obst, 1908   should be conserved at ZHMB. Unfortunately, it was not found there, so it is presumably lost, or mislabeled and thus not recognizable anymore. Hence, it was not possible to ascertain its precise identity, but, based on the description and the original drawing, there are no doubts that it belongs to the genus Stephanocleonus   . It is probably a synonym of a Chinese species of Stephanocleonus   , but in absence of the type no specific identification can be proposed.
