Alloxysta cursor (Hartig, 1840) 

Xystus cursor  Hartig, 1840

castanea  (Kieffer, 1904, Pezophycta  ) preocc.




Considered a nomen dubium in Ferrer-Suay et al. (2014) but Evenhuis (1982) studied the type and subsequently identified British specimens as belonging to this taxon, so we see no problem with considering it a valid British species. It was listed as castanea  in Quinlan (1978a) but not mentioned by Fergusson (1986) and then recorded again by Müller et al. (1999).
