  • Strongylosoma elegans Chamberlin 1920: 119 (in species catalogue. Chamberlin: 'This species is the type of Atropisoma Silvestri. Without knowledge of the male the significance of the genus is difficult to determine.' Listing this species twice under two different generic names in the same catalogue is clearly an error.)
