Abstract

The types species of the monotypic North Algerian Bythinines genera Acanthobythus Normand, 1930 and Ceratobythus Normand, 1932 are revised, with their habitus and aedaegi illustrated for the first time. The lectotype of Bythoxenus (Acanthobythus) araneipes Normand, 1930 is designated. These two genera are synonymized with Tychobythinus Ganglbauer, 1896 (Acanthobythus Normand, 1930 syn. nov. and Ceratobythus Normand, 1932 syn. nov.), and their types species are consequently recombined as Tychobythinus araneipes (Normand, 1930) comb. nov. and Tychobythinus monoceros (Normand, 1932) comb. nov.
