According to Slipinsky & Escalona, the name signiferum is unavailable since not binomial.
However, Callidium signiferum was published as binomial in 1842 (here).

According to the ICZN Art. 12.1.
To be available, every new name published before 1931 must satisfy the provisions of Article 11 and must be accompanied by a description or a definition of the taxon that it denotes, or by an indication.

12.2. Indications
For the purposes of this Article the word "indication" denotes only the following:
12.2.1. a bibliographic reference to a previously published description or definition even if the description or definition is contained in a work published before 1758, or that is not consistently binominal, or that has been suppressed by the Commission (unless the Commission has ruled that the work is to be treated as not having been published.


In this case, we have an indication to a previously published description; thus the name Callidium signiferum Newman, 1842 is valid.
