Remarks: Pseudechiniscus  . suillus  is considered a complex of similar species ( Fontoura & Morais 2011) and, originally described from Europe ( Ehrenberg, 1853), now requires a re-description. Very similar species (e.g. P. facettalis  or P. juanitae  ) are also known from the South America and the presence of P. suillus sensu  stricto is thus questionable and should be confirmed.
