Taxonomic Notes: Acrolophus walsinghami Möschler, 1890 is now recognized within the North American fauna, reported from Florida by J. Troubridge. This name was erroneously synonymized  with Acrolophus triatomellus (Walsingham 1897) in Davis (1986) as a junior synonym according to Peter Jump (pers. comm., 2/27/2017). A. walsinghami has priority and is here retained although it does not appear that a correction has been formally published.
