I inform you that many web-sites devoted to Cerambycidae, including Facebook are referring that an entomologist (A. Vartanis) is selling FAKE TYPES.

Please give a look to this forum:
Polskie Forum Entomologiczne

Je ne suis pas surpris outre mesure!, mais d'autres "pseudo entomologistes" sont pressés de lister et produire de nombreux paratypes pour pouvoir les revendre à prix d'or sur le net.
Même si il ne s'agit pas de faux, cela démontre bien la mentalité de certains "confrères" et l'utilisation dévoyée de la recherche scientifique à des fins commerciales....

Petit business minable. M. Vartanis va vite devenir célèbre dans le petit monde de l'entomologie .

Thank you very much Francesco to share here this situation.
If anybody has paratypes suspects of the species that I’ve described can send me a picture.
