Calocerus simplex WENDELER, 1955: 191  

Espeson simplex IRMLER, 2012: 346   new synonymy

Type material examined: 1 male syntype: Brazil: Santa Catarina, Nova Teutonia (27°11'S, 52°23'W), 300–500 m elevation, leg F. Plaumann ( ZMHU) GoogleMaps   ; 1 male, 1 female syntypes: with same date ( MNPD)   .

According to notes published by WENDELER (1955), the types of Calocerus simplex (WENDELER, 1955)   should be in his collection and in the collection of Franke. The collection of Wendeler was deposited in ZMHU, the collection of Franke was deposited in the collection of MNPD. A syntype of Calocerus simplex   was not found in ZMHU, whereas two syntypes were found in MNPD. The finding of the syntypes of Calocerus simplex Wendeler   in MNPD revealed that they were identical with Espeson simplex IRMLER, 2012   . IRMLER (2012) described the species on the base of specimens from the ZMHU, where it was deposited under the name Espeson simplex WENDELER. Reviewing   the Espeson species   and studying the material of ZMHU, IRMLER (2012) supposed that E. simplex   was a manuscript name given by Wendeler for a new undescribed species. After finding the syntypes of Calocerus simplex   in MNPD, it became clear that WENDELER (1955) described this species as Calocerus simplex   . Later he found that the species belongs to the genus Espeson   , but never published this transfer. So, syntypes of Espeson simplex   labelled by Wendeler are deposited in ZMHU and two syntypes in MNPD. Thus, Espeson simplex IRMLER, 2012   is identical with Espeson simplex (WENDELER, 1955)   and becomes its objective homonymic synonym.
