*Hister (?) aeneus* Fabricius, 1775. Now in genus *Saprinus*.

This specimen is from William Hunter's collection which was utilised by Fabricius and Olivier in describing many new species.

Although this specimen was found standing under a label as *Hister aeneus* it has been noted that it may not be that species.

The collection contains types from other contemporary eighteenth century entomologists such as Drury.
