Taxonomic notes
According to Silva et al. (1996), the name Kylinia microscopica has been misapplied to this species by Desikachary, V.Krishnamurthy & M.Balakrishnan (1990: 67-68, figs. 10A-D).

Gallardo et al. (2016: 15) include Acrochaetium crassipes (Børgesen) Børgesen in the synonymy of "Acrochaetium minimum (Suhr) G. Hamel"; however, it is unclear if this is Acrochaetium minutum (Suhr) Hamel or Acrochaetium minimum Collins. - (27 Sep 2016) - M.D. Guiry
