A taxonomic revision of Limnobaris Bedel in the strict sense (Coleoptera, Curculionidae, Baridinae), with particular emphasis on the species found in China.

Prena J, Korotyaev B, Wang Z, Ren L, Liu N, Zhang R - Zookeys (2014)

Bottom Line: New or reestablished synonyms are L. dolorosa (Goeze) (= L. jucunda Reitter, = L. koltzei Reitter), L. tibialis (Voss) (= Pertorcus tibialis pilifer Voss) and L. t-album (Linnaeus) (= L. bedeli Reitter, = Baridius crocopelmus Gyllenhal, = L. sahlbergi Reitter, = L. scutellaris Reitter, = Baris t-album sculpturata Faust).Calandra uniseriata Dufour is considered a junior synonym of Sitophilus oryzae (L.) (syn. n.).A key for identification and a distribution map are provided.

ABSTRACT
The genus name Limnobaris Bedel is applied in a restricted sense to baridine weevils with a covered pygidium and non-prominent, decussate mandibles which occur on sedges in the Palaearctic Region and immediately adjacent parts of tropical Southeast Asia. Calyptopygus Marshall and Pertorcus Voss are syn. n. of Limnobaris. Some species from Africa and the Americas are maintained provisionally in Limnobaris in the widest sense but will need to be transferred to other genera in future studies. A total of eleven species is recognized in Asia, two of which are widespread and occur also in the Western Palaearctic Region. Limnobaris martensi Korotyaev sp. n. is described from Nepal. Pertorcus tibialis basalis Voss is raised to species rank, as L. basalis (stat. prom.). New or reestablished synonyms are L. dolorosa (Goeze) (= L. jucunda Reitter, = L. koltzei Reitter), L. tibialis (Voss) (= Pertorcus tibialis pilifer Voss) and L. t-album (Linnaeus) (= L. bedeli Reitter, = Baridius crocopelmus Gyllenhal, = L. sahlbergi Reitter, = L. scutellaris Reitter, = Baris t-album sculpturata Faust). Calandra uniseriata Dufour is considered a junior synonym of Sitophilus oryzae (L.) (syn. n.). A key for identification and a distribution map are provided.

Mentions: Small size (2.7–3.2 mm) and scattered, squamiform, appressed setae on the elytron make Limnobaris albosparsa a distinctive species around the Eastern Sea (Sea of Japan). The aedeagus is identical to that of the more southern Limnobaris tibialis except for its somewhat wider base (Fig. 10 vs. Yoshihara and Morimoto 1994: 451), and the two species usually have a sharply pointed tooth on the ventral edge of the male protibia (Fig. 5). However, they are allopatric (Fig. 13) and Limnobaris tibialis has erect rather than appressed setae on the elytron. Other small species, like Limnobaris basalis, Limnobaris elliptica and Limnobaris martensi, have a blunt male protibial tooth and lack scattered squamiform setae on the elytron.
