Halys (Halys) fabricii Memon, Ahmad & Perveen, 2002

The homonymy of Cimex dentatus Fabricius, 1775 and Cimex dentatus De Geer, 1773 was correctly recognized by Ghauri (1988), who replaced the preoccupied C. dentatus Fabricius by Halys serrigera (Westwood, 1837), considered by him as its junior synonym. Memon et al. (2002) refused the conspecificity of C. dentatus Fabricius and H. serrigera, resurrected the latter as a valid species and replaced the first by a new name. The distribution of Halys fabricii and H. serrigera needs verification.
