The genus Paratriticites was synonymized with Triticites Girty, 1904 by Loeblich and
Tappan (1987), but such a synonymy is not possible because: 1) the cuniculi present in Paratriticites are totally absent in Triticites; 2) as indicated by Leven and Shcherbovich (1978, text-fig. 8 p. 54) or Leven et al. (1992, tabl. 2), the last occurrence of Triticites is in the middle or late Asselian, whereas Paratriticites is a Yakhtashian genus. Vachard (2018) to be published.
