Both species are present in the gallery, but I can attach them here another time:


Rosenbergia straussi Gestro, 1876


Rosenbergia rufolineata von Breuning, 1948

The holotype of R. straussi is preserved in the Civic Museum of Natural History, Genoa.
No specialist checked it during the description of the var. rufolineata (actually a good species), or of R. lislei Rigout, 1980 (actually a synonym of straussi), or during the revision of this genus.
Only in 2006, Carlo Arrigo Casadio noticed that R. straussi was in reality a species completely different from what was believed until that moment.
You can ask the paper directly to the author: he is a member of our Forum: Carlo Arrigo
