Abstract

Lectotypes of Orthochaetes caucasicus Motschulsky, 1845 and Opitomorphus brevirostris Motschulsky, 1845 are designated. A new combination and new synonymies are established: Anchonidium caucasicum (Motschulsky, 1845), comb. n. (= Styphlus ulcerosum Aubé, 1850, syn. n., = Anchonidium corticeum Faust, 1886, syn. n.); Stomodes Schoenherr, 1826 (= Opitomorphus Motschulsky, 1845, syn. n.); Stomodes tolutarius Schoenherr, 1826 (= Opitomorphus brevirostris Motschulsky, 1845, syn. n.).
