Bitoma Herbst, 1793 

palmarum Bondar, 1940: 852  (without figures)

Lectotype ( Fig. 2CView FIGURE 2): BRAZIL, Bahia: G. Bondar leg., MZFS#32400 ( Fig. 2F, HView FIGURE 2). 

Paralectotypes ( Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 D–E): 5 specimens, BRAZIL, Bahia: G. Bondar leg., MZFS#32400 ( Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 G–H)  .

Comments: according to Bondar (1940) ( Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 A–B), the type of Bitoma palmarum  was at the author’s collection and the paratypes were deposited at the Imperial Institute of Entomology in London and Instituto de Experimentação Agrícola do Rio de Janeiro in Brazil ( Fig. 2BView FIGURE 2). There is no mention to other paratypes. The specimens with cotype label are mounted with labels in one insect pin. Bondar probably donated these specimens to Embrapa— CNPMF collection which now is at MZFS. Bondar’s collection was donated to EMBRAPA and posteriorly donated to MZFS. Probably, the material mentioned by the Bondar (1940) ( Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 A–B) in the original species description, the specimens designated as typus and paratypus correspond to the specimens designated as cotypus. Based in all this informations and according in the Article 74 (International Code of Zoological Nomenclature—ICZN, 2019), we designated the lectotype ( Fig. 2CView FIGURE 2) and paralectotypes ( Fig. 2View FIGURE 2 D–E) with the cotypus serie.
