Remarks: Grandjean (1965) suggested that Nothrus biciliatus C.L. Koch, 1841  was an unrecognizable species and that it would be preferable to use the name Nothrus anauniensis Canestrini and Fanzago, 1876  for the biciliatus  of authors. According to Marshall et al. (1987), some North American records of this species might be confused with N. monodactylus ( Berlese, 1910)  , N. terminalis Banks, 1910  and N. truncatus Banks, 1895  , all similar species.
