Rugilus similis (ERICHSON 1839)  

Stilicus similis ERICHSON 1839a: 521   f.

T y p e m a t e r i a l e x a m i n e d: Lectotype, present designation: "Hist.-Coll. ( Coleoptera   ), Nr. 6401, Stilicus similis Erichson, 1839   , German., Sicil. / Zool. Mus. Berlin / Lectotypus

A d d i t i o n a l m a t e r i a l e x a m i n e d: Austria: 1 ex., Burgenland, Andau, 2.IX.1988 (cAss). Italy: 1 ex., Toscana, Montemignaio , 18.VIII.1987, leg. Bellin (cAss)   ; 1 ex., Puglia, Prom. del Gargano, Vico , 650 m, 25.VIII.-6.IX.1986 (cAss)   ; 1 ex., same data, but 600-800 m (cAss).

Schubert ( NHMW). Ukraine: 1 ex., lower part of Onestr river , "Kinburg", W Nadworny, 27.VIII.1988 (cAss)   .

C o m m e n t: According to the original description, Rugilus similis   is identical with Gravenhorst´s interpretation of Paederus orbiculatus   . In the historical collection of the MNHUB six specimens were found that were originally attributed to Stilicus orbiculatus sensu Gravenhorst   and later labelled as S. similis   , so that all of them can be regarded as syntypes. A male is designated as the lectotype. It is in agreement with the interpretation of LOHSE (1964) and COIFFAIT (1984). According to SMETANA (2004), the species was previously unknown from Slovenia.
