status

 

Phaenops lecontei ( Obenberger, 1928)  

( Figs. 3, 4 View FIGURES 1–4. 1–3 )

Melanophila lecontei Obenberger, 1928: 210   .

Melanophila arcuata Fall, 1932: 83   .

Melanophila caseyi Obenberger, 1944: 321   syn. nov.

The unique male holotype of M. caseyi   , 9 mm long by 3.5 mm wide ( Figs. 3, 4 View FIGURES 1–4. 1–3 ), is labeled as follows: “California [h] // TYPUS [red, p, framed] // Melanophila caseyi   m. Type [h], Det. D r. Obenberger [p] // Mus. Nat. Pragae Inv. 22080 [p, orange, number handwritten] // Phaenops arcuata (Fall)   [h], Typus comparandus A. Cobos det. 1984 [p]". Cobos did not publish this. Nelson et al. (1996) synonymized P. arcuata   with P. lecontei   . Having found no

significant differences between both species we consider P. caseyi ( Obenberger 1944)   also to be conspecific with P. lecontei ( Obenberger 1928)   and a junior synonym.
