  Comment: Lestomerus bicolor Villiers, 1948 is a junior secondary homonym of Lestomerus bicolor (Distant, 1903). The junior name may require a replacement name, unless it has an available synonym, such as Peirates sin Linnavuori, 1984, which would need to be combined with the present genus, as Lestomerus sin (Linnavuori, 1984)
