Parasabella saxicola (Grube, 1861)


Parasabella saxicola (Grube, 1861) 

Demonax brachychona  ( Claparède, 1870)


Knight-Jones et al. (1991) synonymise Demonax saxicola  and Demonax brachychona  ( Claparède, 1870) but erroneously use Demonax brachychona  as the preferred name, despite Grube's name being older and thus having priority. Tovar‐Hernández and Harris (2010) re-instate the use of the name Demonax saxicola  over Demonax brachychona  and introduce Parasabella  Bush, 1905 as a replacement name for Demonax  Kinberg, 1867 (which is pre-occupied by the beetle genus Demonax  Thomson, 1860). Type locality: Mediterranean (Adriatic).
