*Trox luridus* Fabricius, 1781 Un

Many of the specimens in Hunter's eighteenth century collection were utilised by Fabricius and other contemporary entomologists for describing new species. These two specimens had been labelled as the types of *horridus* as a result of their being transposed in the drawer. See Scholtz, J. Ent. Soc. Sth Africa, 42, pp169-180.
