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

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.

Yellow line demarks southern limit of Palaeartic Realm according to Hoffmann (2001).

See Yoshihara and Morimoto (1994) for distribution of Limnobaris babai in Japan. Yellow line demarks southern limit of Palaeartic Realm according to Hoffmann (2001).

Mentions: Because of our emphasis on Chinese fauna, we list under “Material examined” only specimens collected not further than 1000 km away from the Chinese mainland. Collecting trips were made by us to Fujian, Jilin and Yunnan in 2013 to obtain biological data and fresh specimens for morphological and future molecular comparison of regional populations. For the map in Fig. 13, we combined our records with collecting data published by Zherikhin (1972), Egorov (1976, 1977), Yoshihara and Morimoto (1994), Hong et al. (2000, 2011), Legalov (2009) and in original descriptions. Geographic distributions were explored with GoogleEarth directly from the graphical user interface of JP’s database via GoogleEarth API. The map presented in this paper was generated with PanMap (www.pangaea.de). Illustrations were prepared from images taken with a Micropublisher 5.0 RTV digital CCD camera mounted on a Zeiss SteREO Discovery V12 or a Canon EOS 650D on a Leica DM2500 compound microscope. Aldus Freehand was used for vector graphics and Adobe Photoshop for pixel-based artwork. Total length was measured from the anterior margin of eye to the abdominal apex in dorsal view with an ocular micrometer in a dissecting microscope.
