REVISION OF THE PURPURICENUS INTERSCAPILLATUS SPECIES - GROUP AND ALLIED TAXA (Coleoptera, Cerambycidae)
AbstractA systematic study on Purpuricenus interscapillatus Plavilstshikov, 1937 and related species from southern European and Near East areas is here presented. Several changes in rank status and a new synonymy are proposed, and four new subspecies are described as below: Purpuricenus interscapillatus ssp. barbarae n. ssp. (NW Israel); Purpuricenus interscapillatus ssp. hermonensis n. ssp. (NE Israel); Purpuricenus renyvonae ssp. neocaucasicus n. ssp. (Turkey, Caucasus); Purpuricenus globulicollis ssp. skypetarum n. ssp. (Albania). The following nomenclatural changes are also introduced: Purpuricenus interscapillatus ssp. nabataeus Sama, 1999 stat. nov.; Purpuricenus interscapillatus ssp. cornifrons Pesarini & Sabbadini, 1992 stat. nov.; Purpuricenus interscapillatus ssp. longevittatus Pic, 1941 stat. nov.; Purpuricenus apiceniger Pic, 1914 stat. nov. After studying of the type specimen the following new synonymy is also proposed: Purpuricenus kaehleri ssp. menetriesi Motschulsky, 1845 = Purpuricenus budensis var. caucasicus Pic, 1902 syn. n.
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
