Coreus marginatus marginatus (Linnaeus, 1758)

A copy of Oshanin, 1906 in BMNH bears a marginal note (p. 189) in W.E. China’s handwriting against the entry for this species: Copium serratus Thunberg 1825 nymph. W.E.C.. Some authors applying the name fundator Herrich-Schaeffer, 1833 in the sense of a variety have emended it to fundatrix. The form syriacus Blöte, 1935 has sometimes been regarded as a subspecies and has been reported from China (NE) Iraq Israel Syria.
