Gibbium psylloides, also known as the hump beetle or the smooth spider beetle (the latter of which it shares with Gibbium aequinoctiale),[1] is a species of spider beetle in the genus Gibbium. It is native to the Palearctic, Southeast Asia, and North Africa.[2] It was first described by Paweł Czenpiński in 1778.[3] North American references to G. psylloides actually refer to Gibbium aequinoctiale.[4]
