Berlese described the species in A.M.S. as " Nothrus bistratus  Nic. non K." (" Nothrus bistriatus  K. " on the plate!). He refers to the species that Nicolet (1855, p. 454, pl. 7 fig. 7) described as a juvenile of Nothrus palustris  and which the last-mentioned author (I.e. p. 397) considered identical with Nothrus bistriatus C. L. Koch  . (Nicolet's references to N. silvestris  , N. palustris  , and N. bistriatus  are extremely confused). In fact the identity of Nothrus bistriatus C. L. Koch  is uncertain; it resembles a Camisia  .

Berlese (1896b) classified the species (as palliata C. L. Koch  ) with the genus Angelia  ; on p. 30 he mentions N. peltifer C. L. Koch  as a synonym, and on p. 32 Hermannia bistriata  Mich. Nothrus cirrosus Canestrini & Fanzago  (1876, p. 100), mentioned by Berlese (1896b, p. 29) as a synonym of Angelia palliata  , is of uncertain identity.

Platynothrus peltifer  is the correct name of the present species; it is found in Europe, Greenland, and Canada. A detailed description was given by Sellnick & Forsslund, 1955, p. 515, figs. 17, 18.

According to Lombardini (1936) the specimens in the Berlese Collection are identified as Heminothrus bistriatus  and Platynothrus palliatus  . I have paid, however, no attention to the preparations of this common species.
