A. benardi ( Portevin, 1923: 380) 

( Ptomaphagus  ) (as 1823 [sic] in Jeannel, 1936: 65); Jeannel, 1936: 65 (not stated as taxonomic change, because he did not mention the species was not described under Adelopsis  ) [but see Note 2]; Gnaspini, 1996: 539 (holotype seen); Salgado, 2010c: 213 (assignment to group); Gnaspini & Peck, 2019: 27 (holotype seen; assignment to subgroup). Holotype male [a single specimen in original description, assumed as holotype] in MNHN [in original description—i.e., only 1 male examined; but Gnaspini, 1996 examined an additional female labeled “type”].

Type locality: “? Teresópolis”, [Rio de Janeiro State], Brazil.

Distribution: Brazil: Rio de Janeiro State: (probably) known only from type locality.

Note 1: Jeannel, 1936: 66 lists type as “Teresópolis?” and then lists material examined as “Teresópolis” (without the “?”); but the type label indeed reads “Theresopolis?” ( Gnaspini & Peck, 2019).

Note 2: Jeannel, 1936: 66 adds a record in São Paulo State ( Brazil) in ZMUH, probably a doubtful record since it refers to a female.

Note 3: Szymczakowski NMPC specimen ( Brazil: São Paulo) (as in Szymczakowski, 1963: 670, as? ber- nardi [sic], with a redescription) actually belongs to a different species (Gnaspini, 1996: 540). It refers to A. szymczakowskii  ( Gnaspini & Peck, 2019: 29, 32).

Note 4: The records in Salgado, 2005d: 969 (as bernardi [sic]), 2015b: 33 (as bernardi [sic]) ( Brazil: Santa Catarina and Paraguay) are considered doubtful/erroneous ( Gnaspini & Peck, 2019: 29).
