Itarissa pedritosilvai (Piza, 1972)

comb. nov.

Itarissa pedritosilvai (Piza, 1972)  comb. nov.

Paracoelophyllum pedritosilvai Piza, 1972 

Paracoelophyllum Piza, 1972  syn. nov. of Itarissa Walker, 1869 

The description of Paracoelophyllum  mentions only insignificant differences to Coelophyllum Scudder 1875  . The latter genus has already been synonymized under Itarissa  by Hebard in 1927. Since Piza’s species looks like a typical Itarissa  , its original genus will become a synonym as well.
