Synonyms and other taxonomic changes
The genus has been split into several genera long ago in the context of the palaearctic fauna. Resorting of neartic species to these entities is in process. Only one species, C. kendalli (Kirby), will remain in Ctenicera, the remainder will be transferred.(1) Some of these genera are already observed in the guide.
