Thomson (1865) described Pteridotelus lacrymans  without explaining its inclusion in the genus. Since the main feature of Pteridotelus  (last antennal segments distinctly widened), is not present in this species it is incorrect to maintain it in the genus. The species Pteridotelus lacrymans  appears in Monné & Giesbert (1994), and Monné (1994) as an Acanthoderes  , without explanation in either reference. Factually, Pteridotelus lacrymans  cannot be placed in Acanthoderes (Pardalisia)  , because the antennae are distinctly longer, with distinct ventral pubescence, clearly forming tufts in antennomeres III and IV (distinctly shorter and glabrous in A. (P.) funeraria Bates, 1861  , elytra carinate toward distal area (not so in A. (P.) funeraria  ). Due to the antennal setae Pteridotelus lacrymans  also has affinities with Tetrasarus Bates, 1880  . However, Tetrasarus  is another problematic genus with species assigned to but not belonging to it. The presence of a dense tuft of long setae on the apex of antennomeres III and IV is a definitive character of Tetrasarus  and is lacking in P. lacrymans  . Although Pteridotelus lacrymans  differs somewhat in general appearance to other Scythropopsis  species it is provisionally placed in the genus because of the common characters previously commented on.
