Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Apodopsyllus Kunz, 1962 (Family Paramesochridae)
Kunz (1962: 254) proposed the generic name Apodopsyllus for Apodopsyllus africanus Kunz, 1962 and four species previously placed in the genus Leptopsyllus T. Scott, 1894b: L. littoralis Nicholls, 1939b; L. spinipes Nicholls, 1939b; L. arenicola Chappuis, 1954c; and L. reductus Petkovski, 1955 [subsequently replaced by L. perplexus Wells, 1963 (nomen novum)]. Kunz neglected to fix a type species and, despite several reviews and substantial additions subsequent to his work (e.g. Lang 1965; Cottarelli 1973; Coull & Hogue 1978; Gómez 2002a), the generic name Apodopsyllus Kunz, 1962 [nomen nudum] has remained unavailable until now. Apodopsyllus gen. nov., here explicitly indicated as an intentionally new name (ICZN Art. 16.1), denotes a taxon that can be differentiated from other genera in the Paramesochridae by the combination of characters outlined in Kunz’s (1962: 254) generic diagnosis. Apodopsyllus panamensis Mielke, 1984a is here fixed as the type species by original designation. Since the provisions of both ICZN Arts 13.1.2 and 13.3 are now satisified the generic name Apodopsyllus is here made available with the present authorship and date. The genus has seen the addition of 19 species and one subspecies since its initial proposal as a nomen nudum by Kunz (1962). The respective new combinations are as follows: Leptopsyllus littoralis Nicholls, 1939b = Apodopsyllus littoralis (Nicholls, 1939b) comb. nov.; Leptopsyllus spinipes Nicholls, 1939b = A. spinipes (Nicholls, 1939b) comb. nov.; Leptopsyllus madrasensis Krishnaswamy, 1951 = A. madrasensis (Krishnaswamy, 1951) comb. nov.; Leptopsyllus arenicola Chappuis, 1954c = A. arenicola (Chappuis, 1954c) comb. nov.; Leptopsyllus adaptatus Krishnaswamy, 1957 = A. adaptatus (Krishnaswamy, 1957) comb. nov.; Leptopsyllus depressus Krishnaswamy, 1957 = A. depressus (Krishnaswamy, 1957) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus africanus Kunz, 1962 = A. africanus (Kunz, 1962) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus perplexus Wells, 1963 = A. perplexus (Wells, 1963) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus schulzi Noodt, 1964 = A. schulzi (Noodt, 1964) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus vermiculiformis Lang, 1965 = A. vermiculiformis (Lang, 1965) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus lynceorum Cottarelli, 1973 = A. lynceorum (Cottarelli, 1973) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus camptus Wells, 1971 = A. camptus (Wells, 1971) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus africanus listensis Mielke, 1975 = A. africanus listensis (Mielke, 1975) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus bermudensis Coull & Hogue, 1978 = A. bermudensis (Coull & Hogue, 1978) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus unguiformis Coull & Hogue, 1978 = A. unguiformis (Coull & Hogue, 1978) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus aberrans Mielke, 1984a = A. aberrans (Mielke, 1984a) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus arcuatus Mielke, 1984b = A. arcuatus (Mielke, 1984b) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus panamensis Mielke, 1984a = A. panamensis (Mielke, 1984a) comb. nov. [type]; Apodopsyllus biarticulatus Cottarelli & Altamura, 1986 = A. biarticulatus (Cottarelli & Altamura, 1986) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus chilensis Mielke, 1987 = A. chilensis (Mielke, 1987) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus cubensis Mielke, 1988 = A. cubensis (Mielke, 1988) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus melitae Kunz, 1992 = A. melitae (Kunz, 1992) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus alejandrovillalobosi Gómez, 2002a = A. alejandrovillalobosi (Gómez, 2002a) comb. nov.; Apodopsyllus pseudocubensis Gómez, 2002a = A. pseudocubensis (Gómez, 2002a) comb. nov.; and Apodopsyllus samuelgomezi Gómez, 2002a = A. samuelgomezi (Gómez, 2002a) comb. nov. [details]
