Note 1. The name Scarabaeus valgus  is first used in Linnaeus (1758: 347) for a species now known as Phanaeus vindex MacLeay, 1819  (p. 133). Olivier (1789: 43) erroneously attributes the name to what is now known as Phileurus valgus Olivier, 1789  . For a more extensive explanation, see Ratcliffe and Cave (2015: 265).

Note 2. The distributions of the varieties of Phileurus valgus  in the Coleopterorum Catalogus ( Arrow 1937b: 89), which are presented under the specific name P. castaneus  , do not agree with those in the original publications.
