Abstract: We provide information on the type specimens of Neotropical species of Buprestidae (Coleoptera: Buprestoidea) deposited at the Museo de La Plata (MLP). Among them, there are syntypes of 45 species of J. Obenberger, and syntypes, holotypes or paratypes of species described by C. Berg, A. Cobos and Ch. Kerremans, plus lectotypes and paralectotypes designated based on syntypes of Obenberger’ species. Besides, we compiled a list of 37 species which specimens are labeled as types (metatypes or homotypes), but in fact these specimens were compared with the types by the authors of the species (e.g. C. Burmeister, J. Obenberger, Ch. Kerremans). Moreover, we provide information on missing types (formerly at the MLP but not in the collection at present) and specimens labeled as types of species never described. Most species herein treated were collected in Argentina by the specialist M. Viana, but there are also species from Brazil, Uruguay and Perú. For each species, we bring information on original and valid names, bibliographic references, category of types, sex of the specimens (if it is indicated) and code numbers assigned to them in the MLP entomological collection.

Keywords: Type material, Buprestidae, Museo de La Plata, Obenberger.

Resumen: En este trabajo se brinda información sobre el material tipo de especies neotropicales de Buprestidae (Coleoptera: Buprestoidea) depositado en el Museo de La Plata (MLP). Entre ellos hay 45 sintipos de especies de J. Obenberger y sintipos, holotipos o paratipos de especies descriptas por C. Berg, A. Cobos y Ch. Kerremans, como así también lectotipos y paralectotipos basados en sintipos de especies de Obenberger. Además, se compiló una lista de 37 especies cuyos especímenes estaban etiquetados como tipos (metatipos u homotipos), pero que en realidad son ejemplares comparados con los tipos por los autores de las especies (e.g. C. Burmeister, J. Obenberger, Ch. Kerremans). También se brinda información sobre tipos perdidos (estaban en el MLP pero actualmente no están) y sobre ejemplares etiquetados como tipos de especies probablemente nunca descriptas. La mayoría de las especies aquí tratadas fueron coleccionadas en Argentina por el especialista M. Viana, pero hay también especies procedentes de Brasil, Uruguay y Perú. Para cada una de ellas se brinda información sobre nombre original y válido, bibliografía de referencia, categoría de tipos, sexo de los especímenes (si está indicado) y número de código asignado a ellos en la colección entomológica del MLP.

INTRODUCTION

Buprestidae is a family of Coleoptera with almost 15.000 phytophagous insects, usually xylophagous as larvae. Several species have iridescent colors, usually green or golden, reason why they are known as jewel beetles (Bellamy, 2008, 2009). In this contribution, we studied type material of 102 Neotropical species of Buprestidae mainly distributed in Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay, housed at the entomological collection of the Museo de La Plata (MLP), Argentina. These species were described by the specialists Carlos Berg, Antonio Cobos, Charles Kerremans and Jan Obenberger.

Most specimens are syntypes of Obenberger (1947), collected in Misiones, Córdoba and Buenos Aires provinces (Argentina), by the entomologist Manuel J. Viana. Obenberger (1947) stated that the type material of the species described in that paper was deposited at the National Museum of Prague, Czech Republic, and the Viana collection. Currently, Viana collection is at the Museo de La Plata.

There are also syntypes of species of Ch. Kerremans, deposited in C. Bruch’s collection, currently at the Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales “Bernardino Rivadavia” (MACN), Buenos Aires and the MLP; plus holotypes of A. Cobos and C. Berg, and paratypes of Cobos. The specimens labeled as homeotypes or homotypes (specimens compared with and identified based on primary types) or as metatypes (usually topotypes or homotypes determined by the original authors of the species) are not recognized by the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (1999) as part of the type series, but they were included in our work, because the associated information could be useful for future taxonomic research (Evenhuis, 2008).

MATERIALS AND METHODS

We examined 150 specimens labeled as types, corresponding to 102 species of Buprestidae deposited at the MLP. For each species we provide original and valid names, bibliographic references, category of types, sex of the specimens (if it is indicated), and code numbers assigned in the entomological collection of the MLP. The slash after this code indicates if the specimens are holotypes (/1), lectotypes (/2) or syntypes, paratypes, allotype or paralectotypes (/3 and higher numbers). There is an exact transcription of the labels, in a way that brackets separate different labels and slashes, different lines within each label.

The current, valid names of the species are based mainly on the information provided in the catalog of Buprestids of the world published by the specialist Charles Bellamy (2008, 2009), except when the valid names changed subsequently (e.g. Bilý, 2012).

We compiled two separate lists: one for holotypes, paratypes, syntypes, lectotypes and paralectotypes; and another for metatypes and homeotypes (= “cum typus comparat”). Moreover, we bring information on the missing types (those deposited at the MLP but not found) and specimens labeled as types but that are probably “nomina nuda” (species not described).

RESULTS

As the result of our revision we found 57 species with types recognized by the ICZN (2012), among them, there are 45 syntypes of the Czech specialist J. Obenberger, most of them collected by M. Viana; five syntypes of the Belgian specialist Ch. Kerremans; three syntypes of the Argentinian specialist C. Berg (one of them considered holotype because it is the only specimen used for the species description); and one holotype and two paratypes of the spanish specialist A. Cobos. Three syntypes of Obenberger’s species of Eudiadora were designated as lectotypes by Ch. Bellamy (1991), and four syntypes of Tetragonoschema of the same author became paralectotypes, because S. Bilý (2012) designated the specimens housed at the National Museum of Prague as lectotypes. The syntypes of Kerremans (1903) were brought to the author by the coleopterologist Carlos Bruch, organizer of the entomological collection of the MLP (Lanteri & Martínez, 2012).
