the question about year...

Dear colleaques
in Herren Grimm and Schawallers paper has some species described by Carl Koch are dated 1944
But when I am compiling my database of Tenebrionidae I am checking all description myself and I have discovered that
journal called :  Mittailungen der Munchener Ent.Ges., 
XXXIV, Jahrgang 1944 Heft II 
has on bottom front page date of printing 1948
and even article has small print on front of paper on p.255:
Ausgegeben 1.december 1948

What is therefore proper dating of new species...
from my point of view 1948...

Keep care and be of good cheer
