Brachylinga antennata (Kröber)  

antennata Kröber (1911: 498   male key, 500 fem. key, 508 orig. desc.; 1913:29 dist.; 1928a:5 dist., 8 male key, 11 fem. key) ( Psilocephala   ); Metz et al. (2003:22 comb. change) ( Brachylinga   ). Type locality Chile, Concepción. Syntypes in Hermann Collection. Nomen dubium.

Kröber (1911) deposited male and female specimens of Psilocephala antennata   in the Hermann collection. No specimens determined by Kröber as Psilocephala antennata   have been located in the collections of the NHW, USNM, ZMHB or ZSMC and they are presumed lost or destroyed. In his original description Kröber (1911:508) indicated that the scape was spherical. Numerous specimens of Brachylinga   from Chile have been examined during this study and no specimens with a spherical scape were found. The two species of Brachylinga   known from Chile ( B. chilensis   and B. sericeifrons   ) have been collected at Concepción, the type locality of P. antennata   , but have the length of the scape longer than wide (as in Kröber 1928b:35 Fig. 4). Since no specimens of Brachylinga   from Chile matched Kröber’s description of Psilocephala antennata   and none of the syntypes have been located and are presumed lost or destroyed we propose that Psilocephala antennata Kröber   be considered a nomen dubium.
