Leptocorisa acuta (Thunberg, 1783)

acuta Thunberg, 1783, as published in the binomen Cimex acuta [sic; error for acutus Thunberg, 1783 and Cimex acutus] was placed on the Official List of Specific Names in Zoology (Opinion 800/1967). Schouteden (1907a: 113) mentioned type material of L. burmeisteri Montrouzier but Ahmad (1965: 110) could not trace it. The NT designation for Cimex acutus requires approval of the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature (Siwi & Doesburg, 1984: 119). This pest of rice has frequently been known as L. varicornis (Fabricius) while the name acuta was applied to the species catalogued below as L. oratoria (Fabricius).
