REMARKS

Delamare Debouteville (1951b) first published a plate showing diagnostic characters for this species and included the combination Paronella   sp. in the caption to the figure. However, this publication did not include a description of the species. Delamare Debouteville (1952) published the 1951b plate and caption again, but this time he included a formal description. Following the ICZN code, the absence of a description and diagnosis renders the 1951b combination a nomen nudum and the correct authority citation is P. grassei Delamare Debouteville, 1952   .

This species is placed in Trogolaphysa   based on the absence of manubrial spines and on the shape of the mucro, which is typical for Trogolaphysa   species with 3-teethed mucro.

This species has a white head and light blue pigment on legs and body flanks; tenent hair relatively short and weakly spatulate ( Fig. 5A View FIG ); unguis with three inner teeth; unguiculus lanceolate; dens with two rows of spines; and mucro with 3 teeth.

This is the only African species with a three-toothed mucro.
