Type specimens of the species Anobium micans Fabricius, 1792, A. nitidum Fabricius, 1792, and Kateretes castaneus Herbst, 1793, were revised and lectotypes designated. The following new synonymies are established: Cis micans (Fabricius, 1792) = Cis hispidus (Paykull, 1798) syn. nov.; Sulcacis nitidus (Fabricius, 1792) comb. nov. = Sulcacis affinis (Gyllenhal, 1827) syn. nov. Cis castaneus (Herbst, 1793) comb. nov. = Cis alter Silfverberg, 1991, syn. .nov. is the first available name for Cis nitidus auct. (non Fabricius, 1792), Cis fusciclavis Nyholm, 1953, for Cis castaneus Mellié, 1849 (non Herbst, 1793), and Cis submicans Abeille de Perrin, 1874, for Cis micans auct. (non Fabricius, 1792). Genus-group name Eridaulus Thomson is available with the date 1859 and with the type species Cis comptus Gyllenhal, 1827, by original designation. Valid name of Eridaulus sensu Thomson, 1863, is Xestocis Casey, 1898.
