Abstract

An examination of three Maurice Pic types of Pseudodendroides Blair requires as many nomenclatural actions. Pseudodendroides nitidicollisPic, 1955 is transferred to Himalapyrochroa Young: Himalapyrochroa nitidicollis (Pic), new combination. Pseudodendroides distinctipennisPic, 1938 is transferred to Sinodendroides Young: Sinodendroides distinctipennis (Pic), new combination. Pseudodendroides nitidicollis sulcatithorax 1955, Pic is congeneric with Pseudodendroides and not conspecific with Himalapyrochroa nitidicollis, hence it is elevated to specific rank: Pseudodendroides sulcatithorax Pic, new status. A lectotype is also proposed for P. distinctipennis.
