DI IORIO, Osvaldo R.. Systematics and geographical distribution of Heterachthes flavicornis. Iheringia, Sér. Zool. [online]. 2004, vol.94, n.4, pp.413-416. ISSN 0073-4721.

Revision of 973 specimens of Heterachthes flavicornis (Thomson, 1865), mostly emerged from a same individual of different host plant species, shows that this species has a high phenotypical variation in the color of elytra, antennae and legs. This variability is not related to the geographical distribution or to the host plants. Heterachthes flavicornis sexsignatus (Thomson,1865), and Heterachthes flavicornis bonariensis (Thomson,1865) are considered into the synonymy of Heterachthes flavicornis (Thomson, 1865).

Keywords : Coleoptera; Cerambycidae; Heterachthes flavicornis; systematics.
