A propose for acception of a single genus as Judolia Mulsant, 1863 instead of the genera Judolia Mulsant, 1863 and Pachytodes Pic, 1891 (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae: Lepturinae: Lepturini)

Abstract : The paper presents a propose to use a single generic name, Judolia Mulsant, 1863 as valid instead of the genera Judolia Mulsant, 1863 and Pachytodes Pic, 1891. Since, M. Pic simplistically claimed the name Pachytodes as a subgenus of ancient genus Judolia Mulsant, 1863. His claim based on only a few speculative characters. In fact the characters of the North American Judolia does not allow to definite the subgenus Pachytodes
