I am just checking family Tenebrionidae from the Index nearktica (is on
internet, I do not know if there is any printed version) .
I would like to know if there is any mispelling like acuta = aucta is it
worth of publishing as synonym?

and what is proper suffix:
Melanastus ater or atrum
Lobometopon ovalis or ovale
Lobometopon Epitragona plumbeum or plumbea or ?

Keep care and be of good cheer.
