Ericydnus longicornis (Dalman, 1820)


Ericydnus longicornis (Dalman, 1820) 

Grandoriella japonica Tachikawa, 1963: 58  , syn. nov. Ericydnus japonicus (Tachikawa, 1963)  : KERRICH (1966) (new combination).

Type material examined. Ericydnus japonicas  : HOLOTYPE: ♀, Matsuyama, Shikoku,, T. Tachikawa lgt. ( ELKU)  . PARATYPE: 1 ♀, Asami, Matsuyama,, T. Tachikawa lgt. T. Tachikawa det. ( ELKU).

Distribution. Japan: Shikoku (TACHIKAWA 1963). Europe ( NOYES 2016).

Comments. Since Dalman’s types were in poor condition, we additionally used GRAHAM’ s (1991) comments on the species. We are confident that this species is the same as E. longicornis  and thus treat E. japonicus  as a junior synonym of E. longicornis  .
