[Remark: Logunov 1999: 49-51, Logunov, Marusik 2000b: 131 oversimplifiy situation
dismissing Icius magister Karsch 1879 as a nomen dubium - as a matter
of fact type specimen exists (Proszynski 1973: 116), although immature, but
was never carefully studied. There are good drawings in Boesenberg and Strand
1906: 353, figs 133, 353, based on specimen in Frankfurt a. M., and a nomenclatorical
habit of recognizing interpretations of previous revidents. Logunov do not document
by drawings his statements on identity of several forms described under various
names, so we have his words alone. The main question is whether various forms
synonymized by Logunov are single biological species, or not. An additional
argument for caution is observation of the International Rice Research Institute
that this species is important in pest control in rice fields in several countries
of East Asia, where insecticides are not being used (personal communication
from A. T. Barrion). That is too important information to be lost in purely
nomenclatorical name joggligng. Jerzy Proszynski.]
