Description: http://www.gbif.org/species/3263321 Belongs to family Endomychidae (=Merophysiidae, sometimes considered a calid family), not Latridiidae! It was never placed in Latridiidae, so this is a mistake, not an outdated placement.]]>

(1875). Revision der europäischen Lathridiidae. Stettiner Entomologische Zeitung, 36, 297-340. Retrieved from http://biostor.org/reference/110953
Author: rdmpage Comment: This is not to say that it isn't currently placed somewhere else, evidence for that (e.g., a publication) would be helpful. Created: 2016-04-22 17:46:16.74 Updated: 2016-04-22 17:46:16.74
