Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Bodin (1979: 334) established the new genus Ameiropsyllus to accommodate Ameiropsis ariana Monard, 1928 and a new species, Ameiropsyllus monardi Bodin, 1979, but unfortunately neglected to fix a type species, thus rendering the genus unavailable. Both included species are known from the female only but since Bodin’s (1979) description is superior over Monard’s (1928), Ameiropsyllus monardi is here fixed as the type of Ameiropsyllus gen. nov., which is expressly proposed as new under its original name (ICZN Art. 16.1), taking authorship and date of the present paper. The taxon can be differentiated from other genera in the Ameiridae by the characters outlined in Bodin’s (1979: 334) diagnosis, hence satisfying the provisions of ICZN Art. 13.1.2. The two species included are to be cited as new combinations, Ameiropsyllus ariana (Monard, 1928) comb. nov. and A. monardi (Bodin, 1979) comb. nov. In accordance with Wells (2007) [but see Lang (1965: 336) for a dissenting view], the variety described under the name Ameira ariana var. alexandrina Steuer, 1943 should remain subspecies incertae sedis in the genus Ameiropsyllus. [details]
