Pristapenesia asiatica sp. nov. is described and illustrated from two female specimens collected in China and Thailand. This species is readily recognized by the absence of a tubular radial vein in the fore wings. A key to world fossil and living species of Pristapenesia is provided Copyright © 2011 Magnolia Press.

The eight species included by Wood and Bright (1992) in the Palaeotropical scolytine genus Hadrodemius Wood are reviewed. The following new synonymy is proposed: Hadrodemius comans (Sampson) (= Xyleborus amorphus Eggers syn.n., = Xyleborus metacomans Eggers syn.n.), Hadrodemius globus (Blandford) (= Xyleborus tomentosus Eggers syn.n.), Hadrodemius pseudocomans (Eggers) (= Xyleborus artecomans Schedl syn.n.). Hadrodemius (Xyleborus) pubifer (Schedl) is transferred to the genus Coptodryas Wood. Xyleborus melli Schedl is misplaced by Wood &Bright (1992) as a synonym of Hadrodemius amorphus and is here transferred to Xylosandrus Reitter. The following new synonymy is proposed: Xylosandrus amputatus (Blandford) (= Xyleborus melli Schedl syn.n.). A key to the females of the three species now included in the genus is provided. The taxonomy, distribution and biology of the species are briefly reviewed, and some new records included. Copyright © 2010 • Magnolia Press. Source

The present state of knowledge of the pin-hole borers of Thailand is summarised to provide a basis for future studies of the fauna and its economic importance in forestry and timber production. A checklist of the fauna is provided with infor-mation on local and world distribution, host trees, biology and taxonomy. Six faunal elements based on geographical dis-tribution, and the host preferences of species are discussed. Ninety-two species have now been recorded in Thailand, of which forty-three are recorded here for the first time. Three species are endemic to Thailand. The following new combi-nations are given: Dinoplatypus piniperda (Schedl), Treptoplatypus fulgens (Schedl), both transferred from Platypus. Copyright © 2013 Magnolia Press. Source

Species diversity and infestation densities of rubberwood (Hevea brasiliensis Müll. Arg.)-boring beetles at sawmills in southern Thailand were investigated during July 2007 and March 2008. Twenty-two species of wood-boring beetles, nine bostrichids, eight scolytines and five platypodines, were identified. The powder post beetle, Sinoxylon anale Lesne (40%), is the single dominant rubberwood pest in the studied area. Other frequently captured species are Sinoxylon unidentatum (Fabricius) (18%), Heterobostrychus aequalis (Waterhouse) (10%) and Lyctoxylon dentatum Lesne (9%). The Shannon diversity index of rubberwood-boring beetles in the eastern coastal area was significantly (p < 0.01) greater than that in the western coastal area. The infestation density in the dry season was significantly higher than that in the wet season, but there were no significant differences between eastern and western coastal areas. © 2010 The Japanese Forest Society and Springer.

The four species included by Wood and Bright (1992) in the Palaeotropical scolytine genus Phloeosinopsioides Schedl are reviewed. The following new synonymy is proposed: Phloeosinopsioides formosanus (Schedl) (=Phloeosinopsis triseriata Schedl). A diagnosis of the genus and a key to the three species now included in the genus are provided. The taxonomy, distribution and biology of the species are briefly reviewed and some new records included. Copyright © 2011 - Magnolia Press. Source
