Volume 19, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



The genus Pachyphymus was erected by Uvarov (1922) on the basis of Calliptamus cristulifer Serville 1838, with only the female sex known. The genus was regarded as ""somewhat related, probably, to Acorypha Krauss and Acoryphella G. - Tos. Its proper systematic position cannot be defined until the male is known"".
