Clytus (Plagionotus) astecus Chevrolat, 1860: 489   .

Plagionotus astecus   ; Monné, 2017a: 98 (cat.).

Chevrolat (1860) described this species based on three specimens (unknown sex), all from Mexico (without detailed place). Bates (1885) was the first who provided a detailed place in Mexico: Cordova (= Cόrdoba, Veracruz). Now, P. astecus   is known from the Mexican states of Jalisco, Veracruz, Guerrero, and Chiapas ( Monné 2017a). The syntype figured in Bezark (2017) has the central pubescent band on pronotum interrupted, while in the specimens examined by us it is continuous. However, this is a common variation in species of this genus, as for example, in P. arcuatus (Linnaeus, 1758)   . Chevrolat (1860) reported on the pubescent bands on pronotum (translated): “Pronotum… adorned with three, straight pale yellow pubescent bands, extended toward ventral side.” Thus, the author did not report this variation present, at least, in a syntype.

Material examined. MEXICO, Michoacán: La Tzararacua (1550 m), 3 males, 7–11.XI.2005, no collector indicated ( IMQC). New state record.
