Many of us have bought the book
HUA L.Z., NARA H., SAMUELSON G. A. & LINGAFELTER S.W, 2009 - Iconography of Chinese Longicorn Beetles (1406 Species) in Color - Sun Yat-sen University Press, Guangzhou, 474 pp. for the identification of Chinese Cerambycids.

Though this book shows a very large amount of pictures of identified species, it includes several mistakes, erroneous identifications and misspellings.

With the purpose of helping the colleagues to a correct identification and the authors in editing the second edition (as suggested in the preface), I open this topic, where the member of the Forum can signalize the errors they will find.

The right I tend to think of it as Parhoplothrix szetschuanicus (From Guangxi), the color is slightly fading compared with the fresh specimen.

This species has nothing to do with the description of Parhoplothrix szetschuanicus (Cf. here)

seems to be Mimothestus annulicornis Pic

About Parhoplothrix szetschuanicus , once I have checked several specimens in the Museum of Sun Yat-sen University. There are distinct differences with Mimothestus annulicornis. The specimen has the sparser and coraser granules on basal elytra, and the antennae are not fringed with dense and long hairs below.
The left is Mimothestus annulicornis (from Yunnan). The right I tend to think of it as Parhoplothrix szetschuanicus(From Guangxi), the color is slightly fading compared with the fresh specimen.
