Lepidiota flavipennis Lea, 1926  

Lepidiota flavipennis Lea, 1926: 58   .

Holotype (by original designation) female ( Figs. 23–25 View FIGURES 17–28. 17–19 ): flavipennis (handwritten) Lea, TYPE (typeset) Groote Eyl. [Groote Eylandt, 13.68°S, 136.72°E] (handwritten) | Groote Eylandt N. Territory N.B. Tindale (typeset on green) | I.15472 Lepidiota flavipennis Lea Groote Eylandt   (handwritten) TYPE (handwritten in red, at right angle) | SAMA Database No. 25-034463 (typeset) | my holotype label; in SAM. GoogleMaps  

Paratypes: 1: Groote Eylandt, N. Territory, N.B. Tindale (typeset on green label) | Cotype (typeset) | 20694 Lepidiota flavipennis Lea Groote Eylandt   (handwritten) Cotype (handwritten in red, at right angle) | my paratype label; 1 male: Groote Eylandt, N. Territory, N.B. Tindale (typeset on green label) | Cotype (typeset) | my paratype label | aedeagus on card; both in SAM   .

Lea (1926) described this species from three specimens, and he unequivocally designated a “Type” with the SAM registration number I.15472 (vide Article 73.1.1). It is presumably the female specimen considered as the holotype by Britton (1978) and is the one listed as the holotype by Houston & Weir (1992). The remaining two specimens in SAM were correctly considered as paratypes by Britton (1978) and Houston & Weir (1992).
