This combination is not to be confused with Cucujus depressus Fabricius 1775, which is the type species of Cucujus Fabricius 1775, and apparently now a junior subjective synonym of the European species C. cinnaberinus (Scopoli, 1763). As these secondary homonyms are not currently conspecific there is no need for Herbst's name to be replaced
ITIS taxonomy is based on the latest scientific consensus available,
and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties.
However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes.
While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date
information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species
are contained in provisions of treaties to which the United States is a
party, wildlife statutes, regulations, and any applicable notices that have
been published in the Federal Register. For further information on U.S.
legal requirements with respect to protected taxa, please contact the
