Tippmann, F.F. 1953. Lamiinen Mit Interferenz-Farbenspiel (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae, Lamiinae). Entomologische Blätter für Biologie und Systematik der Käfer, 49: 148-153.
Although Tippmann used both "ab." and "var." on his labels, the published work uses "var.". The name following the binomen was not expressly given infrasubspecific rank and the work did not indicate unambiguously that the name was infrasubspecific, therefore, it is deemed a subspecies and available.
