Christopher Majka, pers. comm. to =v= 3/10/10: "I heard from Paul who says that "Ctenicera" horni Schwarz is a secondary homonym. "Ctenicera" longicornis (Horn) has priority. In any event, it will be transferred to an as yet undescribed new genus. Paul says that he expects to do this later in the year."
