Kuchleria Hausmann, 1995 

Kuchleria menadiara  Thierry-Mieg, 1893

Kuchleria insignata  Hausmann, 1995 ("syn. nov.", followed by "stat. rev.")

Kuchleria garciapitai  Expósito, 2006 ("syn. nov.")

Notes

Kuchleria garciapitai  was designated a junior synonym of K. insignata  by Leraut (2009). In the same publication, Leraut (2009) claimed that K. insignata  was a "synonym or subspecies" of Kuchleria menadiara  Thierry-Mieg, 1893. Müller et al. (2019) treated this claim as a formal synonymy of K. insignata  and K. menadiara  and, subsequently, provided molecular and morphological evidence to justify elevating it back to species. Kuchleria garciapitai  remains a junior synonym of K. insignata  .
