Thomson (1865) described the species from Mexico, without a specific locality. Subsequently Bates (1880) provided: Córdova (= Córdoba) in the Mexican state of Veracruz as a collection locality. Noguera & Chemsak (1996) reiterated the Bates (1880) information.

Although the outer angle of the elytral apex is distinctly projected on the holotype of Psapharochrus sallei  , and not so in the holotypes of Acanthoderes nigritarsis  and Acanthoderes sylvanus  , it is still possible that they belong to the same species. For example, the female of Scythropopsis nigritarsis  examined by us has the elytral apex intermediate between the three holotypes. This kind of variation is not unusual in Acanthoderini  as, for example,in Aegomorphus jaspideus (Germar,1823)  where the outer angle of the elytra is usually distinctly project- ed but, can also be slightly or even not at all projected.

The finely granulate eyes and distinct elytral carina, as shown in the photograph of the holotype,support the species transference to Scythropopsis  .

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