Onthophagus rugulosus Harold, 1886 (Coleoptera, scarabaeidae): specific name conserved
Abstract
The Commission has conserved the specific name of the dung beetle Onthophagus rugulosus Harold, 1886 (Coleoptera: scarabaeidae), a widespread species from East Asia, by suppressing the senior secondary homonym Elytridium rugulosum Heer, 1870, a fragmentary fossil from the Miocene of Spitsbergen, Norway, that was transferred to Onthophagus in 1977. A replacement name, O. spitsbergeniensis nom. nov., has been provided for the dubious fossil species.
