Abstract

The genus Calvarium Pic is redescribed and morphological characters discussed. A catalogue of the world species is presented and several new combinations are proposed. Indiocyphon Pic is regarded as a junior synonym of Calvarium Pic. Calvarium maxi Pic is designated the type species of Calvarium Pic. Calvarium inimpressum Pic, 1955 and Calvarium semiobscurum concoloripenne Pic, 1953 are junior synonyms of Calvarium latithorax (Pic, 1950). Several species are transferred from Cyphon to Calvarium: Calvarium carolinense (Blair) comb. nov., C. cautum (Klausnitzer) comb. nov., C. dentatum (Klausnitzer) comb. nov., C. foncki (Pic) comb. nov., C. fouqueti (Pic) comb. nov., C. gredleri (Klausnitzer) comb. nov., C. hashimotorum (Yoshitomi) comb. nov., C. johorense (Yoshitomi et Satô) comb. nov., C. latithorax (Pic) comb. nov., C. longior (Yoshitomi et Satô) comb. nov., C. notabile (Yoshitomi et Satô) comb. nov., C. paui (Pic) comb. nov., C. primitum (Klausnitzer) comb. nov., C. rotundatum (Klausnitzer) comb. nov., C. rufopacum (Klausnitzer) comb. nov., C. samuelsoni (Yoshitomi et Satô) comb. nov., C. sulawesicum (Yoshitomi et Satô) comb. nov., C. takahashii (Yoshitomi et Satô) comb. nov. Two species are transferred from Calvarium to Cyphon: Cyphon massarti (Pic) comb. nov. and C. semiobscurum (Pic) comb. nov.
