I have this species as Grammoechus (Paratossa) albosparsus Breuning, 1947 [Pteropliini]

If anyone can confirm this name...

No, I think it is rather Grammoechus (Paratossa) triangulifer (Ritsema, 1908).


RITSEMA C., 1908. A new Longicorn Beetle from Borneo. Notes from the Leyden Museum 29 (3-4): 261-262.

It also matches Grammoechus (Paratossa) spilotus (Gahan, 1906) !!! See Gahan's paper for an illustration.

Grammoechus (Paratossa) spilotus (Gahan, 1906), original drawing.

I do not know; the white band is different at the apex, no ? but it is possible that both species are synonyms...

I have 3 specimens from Sabah, which could be two species, or just one. I have found other images of ligatus (HT), albosparsus, and another one on Bezark's site of Old World speies. This genus needs a revision. Perhaps there are numerous species, or perhaps just one or two.
