Figulus anthracinus from Madagascar, hitherto regarded as a synonym of F. sublaevis, is resurrected as valid species (stat.res.) and its lectotype is designated. Lectotypes are also designated for F. nossibenus KRIESCHE, 1921, F. monilifer PARRY, 1862, and F. sublaevis (PALISOT DE BEAUVOIS, 1805).
S. SKALICKY 2005: New and little known species of Heteroceridae from Java (Coleoptera: Heteroceridae). p. 349
Based on alleged lectotypes and on material identified by R. Charpentier the author discusses the identity (species concepts) of the three Javanese Heteroceridae described by GROUVELLE (1896): Heterocerus javanicus, H. parvulus, and H. quinquemaculatus. Heterocerus quinquemaculatus GROUVELLE, 1896 is redescribed and formally transferred to the genus Augyles. Heterocerus javanicus and H. parvulus are believed to be synonyms of H. philippensis GROUVELLE, 1896. Augyles stevei sp.n., A. stefani sp.n., A. isabelae sp.n., and A. rarus sp.n., all from Java, are described. Heterocerus virgatus MAMITZA, 1933 and A. gabriellae (MASCAGNI, 1993) are reported from Java for the first time.
G. FUSS, E. GEISER & R. PATZNER 2005: On the host plants of several leaf beetles of Central Europe – the problem of fame and evidence (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae). p. 359
The host plants of chrysomelids are mentioned in many identification keys and faunal lists, but their records are often incomplete or incorrect. To find out the definite host plant of a definite species in a definite area, feeding choice experiments have been carried out with 14 Chrysomelidae species from a prospective nature reserve in Upper Austria. The results were then compared with the records in the main literature. The corresponding and contradictory conclusions are discussed. Combining the results of the feeding choice experiments with the records of several books, it is possible to narrow down possible host plants of the investigated chrysomelids in most cases. It is proved that Prasocuris marginella does not feed on Caltha palustris in the investigated area. Neogalerucella tenella feeds on Polgynum bistorta, but on no other Polygonum species displayed in the experiment. Cassida leucanthemi, which was described only recently on Leucanthemum vulgare, feeds on the closely related Leucanthemum ircutianum, too, but not on other displayed Asteraceae.
F.W. PELSUE, Jr. 2005: Revision of the genus Labaninus MORIMOTO of the world Part II: the L. plicatulus (HELLER) group, with descriptions of four new species (Coleoptera: Curculionidae). p. 373

The following species are presented with short reviews: Labaninus fukienensis (VOSS), L. insulanus (HELLER) comb.n., L. kimotoi (MORIMOTO), and L. plicatulus (HELLER). Curculio insulanus (HELLER) is transferred to Labaninus. Type specimens are deposited in the Bernice P. Bishop Museum, Honolulu, Hawaii; Chinese Academy of Science, Zoological Institute, Beijing, China; Natural History Museum, Basel, Switzerland; United States National Museum of Natural History, Washington, D.C., USA.
