*Erotylus histrio* Fabricius, 1787. Un syntype

[Cayenne; from type description] This specimen is from William Hunter's collection. The specimens were utilised by Fabricius describing new species. The collection contains types from other contemporary entomologists such as Olivier and Drury.

These two specimens from Hunter's main collection sequence are labelled types but there are two others also in the collection in a different drawer that should be seen as part of the syntype series of *histrio*.
