scientific name

Scolytodes ingae ( Blackman 1943 )
status

stat. nov.

Scolytodes ingae ( Blackman 1943)  , stat. nov.

Prinosceles ingae Blackman, 1943  , resurrected from synonymy in S. maurus Blandford. 

Scolytodes trigonus Jordal, 2013  . syn. nov.

The holotype of Prinosceles ingae  , deposited in USNM (photo: http://www.barkbeetles.info), was compared to the recently described S. trigonus  and found to be identical. Scolytodes ingae  was placed in synonymy with S. maurus  by Wood (2007). However, S. maurus  has a largely smooth pronotum, and a smooth male frons. The male holotypes of S. ingae  and S. trigonus  have a triangular field in the frons that becomes rough and irregularly elevated near the epistoma. They also have a tiny puncture associated with each main strial puncture on the elytra, and the interstrial granules are much larger and consistent compared to S. maurus  . Another synonym of S. maurus  in South America, S. medius (Eggers)  , looks like S. maurus  , but cannot be evaluated properly due to the frons is glued in both the type (USNM) and paratypes (NHMW).
