Notes. When mentioning a female ‘holotype’ deposited in MRAC, FAGEL (1960) de facto designated a lectotype; further syntypes become paralectotypes.

Two records published since FAGEL’ s (1960) revision in SCHEERPELTZ (1971: 162) as ‘ Paranisopsis minima ’ and KISTNER (1990: 164) as ‘ Anisopsodes sp. ’ proved to be misidenfications and refer to this species.
