status

 

Genus Diplocheila Brulle, 1835  

Rembus   W.S. Macleay, 1825: 16 [junior homonym of Rembus   Germar, 1824]. Type species: Carabus impressus   Fabricius, 1798 (= Rembus daldorfi   Crotch, 1871) designated by Westwood (1838: 5). Etymology. Uncertain, possibly from the Greek rhembo (turn, revolve, roll) [masculine]. Note. This taxon was made available also by Lepeletier and Audinet-Serville [in Latreille et al.] the same year but the work of Latreille et al. was issued in October 1825 (Evenhuis 1997a: 228) while that of Macleay in July 1825 (Evenhuis 1997b: 507).

Diplocheila   Brullé, 1835a: 407. Replacement name for Rembus   Macleay, 1825. Etymology (original). From the Greek diplo (double) and cheilos (lip), alluding to the markedly emarginate labrum (" lèvre supérieure... presque divisée en deux parties ") of the adult [feminine].

Diplochila   Agassiz, 1846: 125. Unjustified emendation of Diplocheila   Brullé, 1835.

Rhembus   Agassiz, 1846: 322, 323. Unjustified emendation of Rembus   Macleay, 1825.

Distribution.

Twenty-nine species in the boreal, temperate, and tropical areas of the Nearctic (nine species), Oriental (12 species), Palaearctic (nine species), and Afrotropical (two species) Regions. The species are placed in three subgenera: Diplocheila   (nine Oriental and one east Palaearctic species), Isorembus   (18 species), and Neorembus   Ball (one Asian species).

Identification.

Ball (1959) revised the species of this genus. Since this publication, one new North American species has been described by Will (1998) and a few nomenclatural changes affecting the Nearctic species have been introduced by Lindroth (1968-1969a): Ball’s Diplocheila modesta   corresponds to Diplocheila assimilis   and his Diplocheila assimilis   to Diplocheila impressicollis   . Lindroth’s (1968: 940-941) key encompasses seven North American species.
