  Comment: Gmelin (1790:2178) listed Cimex lunaris, and cited Cimex lunatus Fabricius (1787:302, species # 237). Since Fabricius used the same name for another species in the same work (1787:289), Gmelin's change is taken to be a replacement or substitute name. Unfortunately, both species have gone by Cimex lunatus and Lygaeus lunatus in older literature, although they are now in different families (Largidae & Coreidae)
