ON THE IDENTITY OF SCUTIGERA VESUVIANA [O. G. COSTA], 1839 (Chilopoda)
AbstractThe new synonymy “Scutigera Vesuviana” [O. G. Costa], 1839 = Lithobius forficatus (Linnaeus, 1758) syn. nov. is proposed. “Lithobius vesuvianus”, a name erroneously attributed to Achille instead of Oronzio Gabriele Costa and by the authors of a species named but never described different from “Scutigera Vesuviana” [O. G. Costa], 1839, is equated to this latter. The few records of “Scutigera Vesuviana” quoted by the authors after the original description, critically revised, must be referred to Scutigera coleoptrata (Linnaeus, 1758).
