Pipunculus monticola Schummel, 1837   nomen dubium

Pipunculus monticola Schummel, 1837: 86   .

The original description is based on a single specimen (sex unknown) collected on 20 th July at “Wölfelsgrunde der Grafschaft Glatz” (nowadays Poland, Powiat Kłodzki, Międzygórze) by Schummel. Later, P. monticola   was synonymized with P. v a r i p e s by Becker (1921: 156), who does not seem to have studied the holotype. After Schummel’s death in 1848, his collection, which suffered from pests, was divided in 1849, partly through auction ( Groll 2006). At present, it is not clear where the Diptera   went to, the Hymenoptera being located at the DEI for example. The holotype of P. monticola   is presumably lost and the name has therefore to be regarded as a nomen dubium at present. From the brief description, the identity of the specimen cannot be established.
