"The original name Eurhin Illiger is reinstated because the name Eurhinus is preoccupied by the same name in the Apioninae. The 23 species recognized as valid include species formerly in Eurhinopsis Champion which is here considered a synonym. The 24 names that follow are new synonyms: cyaneus (Gyllenhal), callichloris (Lucas), viridipes (Champion), heringeri (Bondar), violaceus, humeralis, cobaltinus (Casey) of festivus (Fabricius); cavilobus, prominens, binarius, minuens, gemmulus (Casey) of magnificus (Gyllenhal); willinki (Bondar) of purpureus (Hustache); cavicornis (Casey), splendidus (Bondar), lobicornis (Hustache) of cupratus Illiger; laetus (Casey) of atritarsis (Chevrolat); puncticollis, gramineus (Casey) of flaturarius Germar; obliqua, angulata, incerta (Casey) of recticollis (Casey); malachiticus (Kirsch) of aeneus (Fabricius); convexa (Casey) of viridicolor (Champion). Many of these species were based on color alone. Eurhin magnificus, however, is not a color variety of festivus, but a valid species. Three new species are described: carinatus and dissimilis, Brazil, and mathani, Peru. Secondary sexual characters of pronotum, rostrum, and femora not previously noted are described for males of three species"--P. [1]-2.
