Centrocoris spiniger (Fabricius, 1781)

The surviving type specimen of Cimex branderi Linnaeus, 1767 in LSUK resembles Rey’s race subinermis. It is without data and lacks the terminal segments of both antennae as it presumably did when Linnaeus described it in his section seticornes. The record from Russia (CT: Bashkiria) apparently is based on mislabelling, and those from Kazakhstan on misidentification.
