Comments. This species was originally described in Rehnidium  . The author mentions than in its external morphology it is very similar to Scaria  but for the structure of the spermatheca. He mentioned that he rather preferred to keep the species in Rehnidium  ( Grant, 1956a, 1962). When the current phylogenetical analysis was performed, we included this species to corroborate its affiliation, resulting in R. verutum  being located within Scaria  and related to the species of the Lineata group. It was not clustered with R. omnivagum  , which was more related to B. flavonotata  . Although we did not study the spermathecae of the species reviewed in this paper, Grant’s observation can result from convergence between the structures of R. verutum  and the remaining species of Rehnidium  , so a new combination for this species is hereby proposed. This species was sufficiently described in detail so a re-description, as was performed for other species in this paper was deemed not necessary.
