According to Tavakilian (2018): “The photography of the type available on Bezark’s Catalog (2018)… shows clearly that the species described as Acanthoderes wappesi Chemsak & Hovore, 2002  … belongs to the genus Psapharochrus Thomson, 1863  and not to the genus Acanthoderes Audinet-Serville, 1835  . This necessary new combination induces a new homonym and the latest species described in honour of James Wappes must be renamed.” However, Chemsak & Hovore (2002b) reported the eyes as being “finely faceted”, which was confirmed in the specimen examined by us. As the species also has distinctly elytral carina, it belongs to Scythropopsis  and thus negates the need for a replacement name.
