Note. In Endrödi (1978: 113) it is mentioned that a lectotype of Phileurus didymus  is designated by Landin. This is incorrect, as Landin (1956a: 7) mentions a specimen which he regards as not being the [holo]type specimen but only as an authentic Linnean one. He does not appear to give this specimen any special status, nor a we aware of any other publications of Landin’s hand in which he may have done so. As mentioned in ICZN Article 74.6, the designation of a lectotype needs to be published, so even if this specimen would contain a label identifying it as the lectotype, this designation would be invalid because of it being unpublished.
