Even based on examination of the photograph of the holotype ( Fig.37View Figures 35-42) we were not able to place this species as a synonym (senior or junior) of another species currently included in Psapharochrus  , Acanthoderes  (including the subgenera), or other genera with species similar in general appearance to it. Thus, the species is considered valid and remains known only from the type locality indicated in the original description (Brazil). The original description and photograph of the holotype is not diagnostic enough to know whether the species really belongs to Aegomorphus  . However, we doubt that the species is from Brazil and, most likely belongs in Scythropopsis  . For now, until more information or specimens become available, it is transferred to Aegomorphus  simply because of its original placement in Psapharochrus  .

Known geographical distribution ( Monné, 2019; Tavakilian & Chevillotte, 2019): Brazil.
