Remarks. 1. P. torpescus Chevrolat, 1873 was often cited as a synonym of P. sollicitus. However, this is an invalid name, used by Chevrolat as an alternative name of P. variegatus Chevrolat, 1873.  2. Remarks: The paper by Gebler (1829), formerly considered to have been published in 1830, and dated as such on the first page, actually appeared on October 4, 1829 (Schmitt 2017 and Alonso-Zarazaga, personal communication). The paper by Zubkov (1829) was surely printed after November 1, 1829 (date of the printing permit as reported on the second page). Therefore, Cleonus exaratus Gebler, 1829 has priority over Cleonis quadrivittata Zubkov, 1829. Pending further study on the possible application of Art. 23.9 ICZN, or alternatively to propose conservation of C. quadrivittata Zubkov, 1829 to the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, the present day status is here maintained.
