2014a Thermastrocythere riojai ( Hoff, 1943)  .—Mestre, Monrós & Mesquita-Joanes: 950 (C).

Remarks: Hoff (1943: 276) designated a biunguis female in copulation as the holotype and the adult male of the pair as the allotype, indicating that several of the paratypes are females, both gravid (= triunguis) and copulating (= biunguis). Further, the majority of the description is dedicated to the female. This type designation was repeated for all species described in Hoff (1942b) and Hoff (1943); Hoff (1944a) shifted to what would become convention, designating a male as the holotype and a female as the allotype. The subgenus designation was removed from Entocythere (Cytherites) riojai in Hoff (1944a)  . Thermastrocythere harti  was designated by Hobbs & Walton (1966) as the type species for the newly erected genus Thermastrocythere  . While examining type material deposited by C. Clayton Hoff in the USNM Collection, Horton H. Hobbs, Jr. and Dabney G. Hart found that the paratypes of Entocythere riojai  were in fact two species. The holotype (= allotype by designation) and a partially dissected paratypic (?) male of E. riojai  were found to be nearly identical to the holotype of T. harti  , making this latter species a subjective junior synonym to Hoff’s E. riojai  . The synonymization was reported in Hobbs & Hobbs (1970: 16–17).
