REMARKS: Rondani (1857: 191) described Paragus tarsatus  from two males: “ Mares duo speciei accepi, unum  … a D. Schembri, alterum … a Prof. Gemellaro [I received two males of the species, one from Mr. Schembri …, the other from Prof. Gemellaro]”. Sommaggio (2002: 55) designated a lectotype (♂), but did not mention the additional male in the MZUF (this additional specimen is a paralectotype).
