Piriana bosqi ( Gilmour, 1954)   , revalidated, comb.nov.

( Figs18–19 View FIGURES 18–27. 18–19 )

Sparna bosqi Gilmour, 1954: 79   ; 1965: 631 (cat.); Monné & Giesbert, 1994: 274 (checklist); Monné & Hovore, 2006: 237 (checklist); Wappes et al., 2006: 38 (distr.); Monné & Monné, 2008: 503 (syn.).

Sparna bosqui   ; Fuchs, 1956: 575; Monné, 1995: 24 (cat.); 2005: 356 (cat.).

According to Monné & Monné (2008) (translated): “The comparison between photograph of the holotype of Carterica soror Belon, 1896   deposited in the MNHN and several specimens, including a paratype of Sparna bosqi Gilmour, 1954   , enabled the synonymy.” Nevertheless, examination of the holotype photographs of these two species (respectively, Figs 18, 20 View FIGURES 18–27. 18–19 ) clearly shows that they are different species. Figure 18 View FIGURES 18–27. 18–19 , even with poor resolution, indicates that the drawing by Gilmour (1954) ( Fig. 19 View FIGURES 18–27. 18–19 ) is accurate regarding elytral shape, although less so regarding the prothorax. The paratype of Sparna bosqi   deposited in MNRJ was not examined. The original description by Gilmour (1954) does not agree very well with the true holotype. This is especially true regarding body and elytral shapes, respectively: “Elongate and rather slender”; “The elytra very elongate.” Furthermore, the male specimen of Carterica soror in Monné & Monné (2008)   ( Fig. 21 View FIGURES 18–27. 18–19 ) shows the proportions between head, prothorax and elytra to be much different than the holotype ( Fig. 20 View FIGURES 18–27. 18–19 ) and may well represent a different species.
