Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSpelling Demonax brachychona is correct original spelling (contrary to Tovar-Hernández & Harris, 2010). ITIS possibly has/had an incorrect spelling [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorStatus Status unresolved. If valid Demonax brachychona should be in Parasabella [Demonax is unavailable]. However, it is probably junior to D. saxicola, although authors appear not entirely certain of this, or whether D. saxicola [now Parasabella saxicola] is a confused concept or not (with implication D. brachychona is better defined). See Knight-Jones (1983), Knight-Jones, Knight-Jones, & Ergen (1991), also Tovar-Hernández & Harris (2010). [details]
