Schultze originally described Pachyrrhynchus speciosus samarensis SCHULTZE 1923 as a separate species. However, Voss, in his 1934 paper, which I haven’t seen yet, made it as a subspecies. These pachyrrhynchine weevils occur in Samar as well as in Mindanao where I have collected these two species in the same area. Could it be possible that these are indeed separate and that Voss was wrong?
