Anastatus (Anastatus) dendrolimus Kim and Pak, 1965  

Anastatus dendrolimus Kim and Pak, 1965: 73   . Described: both sexes.

Anastatus dendrolimus   ; Xiao et al., 2001: 204. Misidentification of A. japonicus   .

Species concept. Our concept of A. dendrolimus   is based on the original description only. We were unable to locate type material of the species, supposedly deposited in Korea University, which according to Duk-Young Park (Seoul National University, Seoul, Republic of Korea) could not be found in the University collection (personal communication).

Regional material examined. None.

Distribution. PALAEARCTIC: Korea ( Noyes 2019).

Remarks. Xiao et al. (2001) identified A. dendrolimus   from Jilin Province, but a voucher female in IZCAS examined by L. Peng proved to be A. japonicus   , and we therefore exclude A. dendrolimus   from the fauna of China. However, we are uncertain of the exact identity of A. dendrolimus   , including even its generic status. The short original description is insufficient to confidently identify the species because it states, in part, that females have the axillae smooth, whereas the axillae are quite distinctly reticulate for typical female Anastatus   . The characterisation of smooth axillae more closely approximates the condition of female Mesocomys   , which as noted under ‘Remarks’ for the genus, often have similar fore wing colour patterns and a basally white-banded gaster as for typical female Anastatus   . However, the only species of Mesocomys   known from South Korea is M. albitarsis ( Ashmead, 1904) ( Noyes 2019)   , females of which have dark legs rather than the described yellow legs for A. dendrolimus   . Further, Kim and Pak (1965) reported M. albitarsis   in the same paper, under the name Pseudanastatus albitarsis   , as a second species reared from D. spectabilis   eggs.
