Brachynema cinctum (Fabricius, 1775)

Zimsen’s (1964) speculation that the 2 Fabrician STS were not conspecific was confirmed by Ribes & Schmitz (1992); the 2nd ST, a female, is actually Holcostethus strictus (Fabricius, 1803). Also, Ribes & Schmitz (1992) indicated that they examined 2male and 3female STS of B. cinctum var. flavatum, all in HNHM except 1 in MNHN, but according to Horváth’s (1896a) original description, he did not have any specimens when he described this variety.
