Nomenclatural notes
Selivanova & Zhigadlova (2010) provide morphological support for the assignment by Schneider & Wynne (on nomenclatural grounds) of Bossiella compressa Kloczcova to Pachyarthron. However, they consider that the rest of the taxa proposed by Schneider & Wynne (2007) for inclusion in the genus Pachyarthron need additional taxonomic studies - (20 Aug 2010) - Wendy Guiry
