The ten species of the genus Trypogeus Lacordaire are revised. T. apicalis Fisher, 1936, is proposed as a new synonym of T. javanicus Aurivillius, 1925. A neotype for T. sericeus (Gressitt, 1951) and lectotypes for Toxotus fuscus Nonfried, 1894 and T. javanicus are designated. Trypogeus fuscus auct. nec Nonfried is a misidentification of Philus ophthalmicus Pascoe. All the species are described and keys are given for distinguishing the species. Photographs of the types of all the Trypogeus species are published for the first time.


Taxonomy, revision genus Trypogeus, Dorcasominae, southeast Asia


Lacordaire (1868) described the Group IX Dorcasomides, amongst the representatives of the subfamily Cerambycinae, in “légion II des Cérambycides vrais, Cohorte I, Cérambycides silvains, section-B, avec les yeux finement granulés” and in this group he included the genera Dorcasomus Serville, 1834 and Megacoleus Lacordaire, 1869.

This division was elevated to Tribe Dorcasomini by Aurivillius (1912), who included six genera (Dorcasomus Lacordaire, 1869, Neoclosterus Heller, 1899; Plectogaster Waterhouse, 1881; Aphelogaster Kolbe, 1897; Gahania Distand, 1907; and Lycosomus Aurivillius, 1903). Quentin and Villiers (1970) separated the latter five genera into other tribes, leaving the genus Dorcasomus as the sole representative of the tribe.

Danilevsky (1979) proposed the status of subfamily Apatophyseinae for Lacordaire’s (1869) Apatophysides, originally comprising the genera Apatophysis Chevrolat, 1860; Pachyticon Thomson, 1857 and Trypogeus Lacordaire, 1869. Later, however, Özdikmen (2008), in agreement with the comments of P. Svacha and M. Danilevsky (1987, 1989), established the synonymy of the subfamilies Dorcasominae and Apatophyseinae.

Type species

T. albicornis Lacordaire (by monotypy)


Anterior part of head with short rostrum. Long protruding mandibles, curved at the apex, the inner margin of the left mandible is sinuate and has no tooth whereas the margin of the right mandible is straight and has a sharp tooth in the middle. The neck is not narrowed or convex behind the eyes. Very long maxillary palpi, extending past the apex of the mandibles. Eyes moderately coarsely faceted; small and not very prominent. Antennae reaching or surpassing the apex of elytra in males, shorter in the females, the insertion is in front of the eyes as in other tribes of the Dorcasominae. The pronotum is subcylindrical, slightly wider than long at the level of the lateral protuberances, transverse in females, the anterior border is thin and simple and the posterior border is sinuate and margined. Discal area finely punctuate and presenting four or five gibbosities. Very short broad prosternum, the intercoxal process very narrow and dilated posteriorly. Procoxal cavities round and well extended towards the sides, almost reaching the lateral protuberance of the pronotum. Front coxae conical and protruding. Sides of the pronotum with a slight border in front of the protuberances. Mesocoxae closer together in males (Fig. 9), and more broadly separated by the mesosternal process in the females (Fig. 10). Triangular scutellum with rounded apex. Elytra not very long, flattened and strongly narrowed in the middle, slightly dehiscent at apex. In the females the elytra do not usually cover the abdomen and leave some terminal abdominal segments uncovered, particularly when it is swollen with eggs. The epipleura are well delimited and flattened. Wings (Fig. 1) are present and well developed in both males and females; they are translucent and somewhat darkened, the radial cell closed and the anal cell open, with simplified venation. Short slender legs, the femurs dilated in the middle and tibiae straight and widened at the apex. Female metatarsi are strongly dilated (Fig. 2), particularly the first two tarsomeres which are wider than the apex of the tibiae. The male aedeagus (Fig. 3) is long and slightly arched, acuminated at the apex, the lower lamina is distinctly longer than the upper. Very simple endophalus lacking interior sclerites (Fig. 14). Short narrow tegmen (Fig. 4) with long slender acuminated parameres, bearing about six long golden apical setae. In general the morphology of the male copulatory organ differs little between species. There are only small differences in the shape of the apex of the aedeagus and in the apical setae on the parameres of the tegmen (Figs 11–13). The integument is generally testaceous yellow with a dark elytral border in some species. The males are darker and generally part of the prothorax and legs is black, whereas the legs of the females are always yellow. Brown and yellowish antennae with the last segments usually almost white.

The genus Trypogeus was described by Lacordaire (1869) in order to include his new species T. albicornis, from Malaysia. He assigned the new genus to his division “Cohorte II. Cérambycides vrais souterrains”, basically due to the morphology of the intercoxal protuberance on the metasternum, narrow and triangular in the males, wide and rounded in the females. The genus Trypogeus was included in the tribe Apatophysides because of its robust maxillary palpi, much longer than the labial palpi and also the weakly narrowed neck. Subsequently, with the exception of Lacordaire, the genus Trypogeus was considered as belonging in the subfamily Lepturinae; Boppe (1921) and Aurivillius (1912) included it in the tribe Toxotini. Nonfried (1894) described Toxotus fuscus from Sumatra (this was a misidentification of Philus ophthalmicus Pascoe), and Aurivillius (1912) later transferred it unduly to the genus Trypogeus. Gressitt (1951) described the genus Paranthophylax in order to include his new species P. sericeus Gressitt from southern China and Artelida asiatica Matsushita, 1933 and placed that genus in the tribe Xylosteini (Lepturinae). Gressitt and Rondon (1970) also transferred Toxotus superbus Pic, 1922 to Paranthophylax. Hayashi and Villiers (1985) retained the genus Trypogeus in the tribe Xylosteini (Lepturinae) together with Formosotoxotus Hayashi, synonymized Paranthophylax with Trypogeus and placed in this genus Toxotus aureopubens Pic, 1903 and Toxotus superbus Pic, 1922 in addition to Trypogeus javanicus Aurivillius, 1925, and Trypogeus apicalis Fisher, 1936. They moved Artelida asiatica to the genus Formosotoxotus. Vives (2005 and 2007) described Trypogeus cabigasi from the Philippines and Trypogeus barclayi from Borneo, Holzschuh (2006) described Trypogeus coarctatus from Java, Indonesia, and Miroshnikov (2014) described two additional species, Trypogeus murzini and Trypogeus gressitti, so that currently the genus contains twelve known species. Of these, I hereby synonymize T. apicalis Fisher, 1936 with T. javanicus Aurivillius, 1925. T. fuscus sensu Hayashi and Villiers (1985) and Vives (2007) (nec Nonfried, 1894) should be assigned to T. coarctatus Holzschuh, 2006, because Toxotus fuscus Nonfried is a misidentification of Philus ophthalmicus; therefore, the genus would be reduced to ten species.

Size of the male 9–11 mm long and 3.9–3.2 mm wide. Body completely testaceous except for the external margin of mandibles, the lateral margin and apex of elytra, the first seven antennal segments and the tibiae, which are almost black. The occiput and thoracic disc have a large brown-black spot. The underside of the body is brown except for the abdominal sternites which are almost black. Broad short head, prominent eyes with medium facets. The lower lobe is almost double the length of the upper lobe. The mandibles are broad, arched and protruding; the inner margin is smooth, lacking a medial tooth. The antennae are long and robust, extending past elytral apex from the third antennomere, the last four antennomeres are yellowish. Pronotum subquadrate, slightly longer than wide with four discal protuberances, one at each side of the pronotal middle. A large brown spot extends longitudinally from the front to the rear border, narrowing at apical third. The entire pronotal surface is coarsely punctate, almost rugged. The hind margin is doubly sinuate. Yellowish prosternum with the front and rear parts brown. Prosternal process long and narrow, the coxal cavities opened behind and procoxae extended at an angle to the sides. Dark brown triangular scutellum with a central depression. The central plate of the mesonotum lacking a stridulatory area. Subconical elytra, wider than pronotum with humeri very obtuse, rounded and projecting upwards. Bordered protruding suture. Apex of elytra rounded and dehiscent. The elytra are narrowed after the middle, widening slightly at apical fifth. Elytral punctation is coarse and granulose, decreasing after apical third. The entire elytral surface is clothed in golden tomentum that becomes brown at sides and brown-black at apex. Legs short and robust, tibiae widened at apex. Clothed in golden tomentum except for tibiae that are covered in dense blackish pubescence. Tarsi not widened and with the first segment of mesotarsi and metatarsi longer than the second and third together. The lower part of the body is finely punctate and clothed in golden tomentum. Copulatory organ of male elongate (Fig. 13) slightly arched with a strongly acuminate apex and the upper lamina narrower and thinner than the lower, not reaching the apex. Lateral parameres long and slender, bearing long setae at apex and some short setae on the inner side.

This species is the smallest in the genus, it can be distinguished from the others by the almost black spots on head and pronotum and the tibiae with black pubescence. The most similar species is T. javanicus Aurivillius, from which it can be separated by the characters mentioned, by the different colouration of elytra and the morphology of the pronotum.

Cylindrical pronotum, almost as wide as long in males, transverse in females, weakly arched sides with a barely protruding gibbosity before the middle. Discal area with four rather indistinct protuberances, the two anterior ones are very close to each other, the posterior pair slightly transverse in the males. Anterior border of pronotum finely margined, the posterior border is sinuate with double margination. Narrow prosternum, prosternal process in the shape of a fine lamina, hardly dilated behind. Widely opened procoxal cavities. Conical prominent coxae contiguous. Mesocoxae slightly separated in males and much more so in females, the metacoxae, contiguous in males, are separated in the females. Triangular scutellum rounded at apex. Elytral apex round and dehiscent. Elytra covered by golden tomentum which becomes reddish or black at the apex and margin of the apical third. Legs short and robust, covered by long silky golden pubescence. Tibiae slightly dilated apically. The male aedeagus (Fig. 14) is long and slightly arched, acuminated at the apex, the lower lamina is distinctlylonger than the upper. Very simple endophalus lacking interior sclerites.


Two syntype specimens described as Toxotus fuscus Nonfried, 1894, were examined that correspond in reality to Philus ophthalmicus Pascoe, 1886 (Fig. 6). It is hereafter established that the species assigned as Trypogeus fuscus auct. belong to T. coarctatus Holzschuh. A lectotype is designated between the two syntypes studied by Nonfried, in order to establish the exact taxonomic status of the species. Lectotype, 1 male from NW Sumatra, Tebing Tinggi, Dr. Schultheiss; 12.V.1884, (DEI) (Figs 7–8).
