Abstract

Pseudosmittia fabioi Boggero, Zaupa & Rossaro, 2014 was found to be conspecific with Prosmittia verae Krasheninnikov & Makarchenko, 2008 after examination of original description and illustrations. Accordingly, Ps. fabioi is placed in junior synonymy with Pr. verae, new synonymy. The transfer of Ps. fabioi to the genus Prosmittia allows to state that the female of Ps. fabioi (Boggero et al., 2014) is the first description of the female of the genus Prosmittia.
