Genus Colon Herbst

Colon Herbst, 1797: 224 (as Kolon  ).

Type species: Kolon viennensis Herbst  (2 species in original description, all as “new”— viennensis  , claviger);

des. in Thomson, 1859: 60 (not stated as taxonomic change); brunneus  listed as the single species in the genus in Shuckard, 1839: 158 (if type species designation [as by monotypy], not stated as taxonomic change; species not originally included in the genus).

= Colon Illiger, 1801: 133 (unjustified emendation of Kolon  ).

Note: Colon is an unjustified emendation by Illiger (1801: 133). Case 2783 of the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature requested conservation of this spelling for purposes of stability in nomenclature, and Opinion 1810 ruled Colon to be correct (ICZN, 1995: 211).

Distribution: Worldwide (149 spp.).

Biology: Unknown, but adults and larvae are suspected to feed on subterranean fungi in forests ( Newton, 1984).
