On the three species of Cantharidae described by Grimmer

Fabrizio Fanti

Fanti F. 2018. On the three species of Cantharidae described by Grimmer. Baltic J. Coleopterol. 18(2): 135 - 137.

With this work I discuss on the three species described by Grimmer in 1841, which were then almost forgotten over the decades. The nomenclatural acts proposed here, are: Telephorus nigripes Grimmer, 1841 = Cantharis quadripunctata (O. F. Müller, 1776) n. syn. and Malthinus gracilis Grimmer, 1841 nomen dubium. Also Malthinus obscurus Grimmer, 1841 is confirmed to be nomen dubium as already proposed by Burakowski et al. (1985).

KeyWords : Key words: Cantharidae, taxonomy, new synonymy, nomen dubium, Grimmer.
