LAOS, Hua Phan, taille 9 mm, leg. Xavier

Voici une Epipedocera qui pourrait être Epipedocera vitalisi Pic, 1922.

It seems that for MIROSHNIKOV A. I., 2014.A review of the genus Clytellus Westwood, 1853, with notes on its systematic position and descriptions of eleven new species; Figs.25 & 26 it is Epipedocera undulata (Hope)= Epipedocera hardwickii (White, 1855)

No ??

Yes, I think so.

You are right, Tom!
And the correct name of E. undulata should be Epipedocera hardwickii (White, 1855), as Chevrolat wrote.
Have you the seen the type of undulata?

I thought "hardwickii" was a nomen novum for "undulata", not a synonym.

Anyway, the type has red antennae and legs and different shape of fascia.

mmmhm... according to Gahan, head and prothorax of undulata are dark red and elytra yellowish red (= orange?), not yellow.
Legs are reddish, but Pic wrote nothing about them.

Moreover, there is a Clytus hardwickii White, 1855, synonymised with undulata.

I do not observe sharp differences in both descriptions... I think we need to verify the types.

Thank you Francesco. I read Gahan's description of E. undulata.
On my specimens, legs and antenna are more blackish and ground colour of the body is always orange-red and never yellow.

I add here Pic's description :
Epipedocera Vitalisi n. sp. Parum elongatus, opacus, rufus, infra corpore et antennis pro parte piceis, elytris nigris, apice et antice late rufis, ad medium eburneo arcuate-fasciatis, apice ad suturam dentatis.
Long. 9-11 mill. Laos (Coll. Pic et Vitalis). - A placer près de leucaspis Pasc.

E. Vitalisi v. nov. longipes.
Diffère de la forme type par les cuisses postérieures dépassant les élytres, les élytres moins parallèles, foncés en avant et seulement brièvement marqués de roux vers l'écusson. Laos.

Epipedocera vitalisi devrait avoir le scape noir et les antennes noires à partir du 5ème article.
Celles-ci, avec les antennes obscurcies à partir du 7ème devraient être Epipedocera undulata (Hope, 1831), mais il y a une variabilité que n’était pas signalisée.
Je ne sais plus si elles sont la même espèce

Ma contribution (même localité) en variétés de cette espèce.
