Paralorryia Baker, 1965




  • The genus Paralorryia was erected by Baker (1965) to receive Tydeinae (e.g. Lorryia) with longitudinal striae between setae D2. The typical generic leg setal pattern was given by Baker (1968: 1098).
  • It was splitted in by André (1980) who mistakenly placed the type-species, Lorryia cumbrensis, in a new genus called Homeotydeus. Homeotydeus was wrongly synonymized with Calotydeus by André (2005: 995). The genus Paralorryia is detailed by Kaźmierski (1998: 340) and is used by Silva et al. (2016).
  • The same word may designate an ornamentation type (ornamentation type "Paralorryia" — in Roman font) or a genus (the genus Paralorryia — in italics) as written by Kaźmierski (1998: 340).
