Abstract

The Chilean genus Pythoplesius Kolbe 1907 is a junior subjective synonym of Cycloderus Solier 1851, and its type species, P. michaelseni Kolbe 1907, is a junior subjective synonym of C. magellanicus Philippi 1862. The nomenclatural confusion resulting from the original description of P. michaelseni is discussed, and a lectotype is designated for this species. /// El género chileno Pythoplesius Kolbe 1907 es considerado un sinónimo secundario subjetivo de Cycloderus Solier 1851, y su especie tipo, P. michaelseni Kolbe 1907, como sinónimo secundario subjetivo de C. magellanicus Philippi 1862.
