[The status of Typhis rapax H. Milne Edwards, 1830, has been uncertain due to the brief original description and lack of illustrations. Stephensen (1925) having examined a specimen labeled T. rapax, presumably from the collection of Milne Edwards, determined that it was the same as Hemityphis tenuimanus Claus, 1879. This synonymy has been accepted by most subsequent authors who have used the older specific name of T. rapax for the species described by Claus. However, I have recently examined syntype material of T. rapax in the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris, and it is clearly the same as Parapronoe crustulum Claus, 1879. The true identity of Typhis rapax Milne Edwards, 1830, is therefore quite different from what was previously thought., The status of Typhis rapax H.
