Taxonomy Lowry & Stoddart (1983) discussed the Parambasia Walker & Scott, 1903 problem. They retained the name Parambasia, but much of their diagnosis was based on P. rossi (Stephensen, 1927). The original material of the type species of Parambasia, P. forbesi Walker & Scott, 1903, is lost and no new material has ever been reported. It is not possible to diagnosis the genus based on the original type species mainly because of lack of information about mouthparts. Stephensen (1927) described the female Pararnbasia rossi, but described the male, Pseudambasia bipartita, in a different genus and species (Lowry & Stoddart, 1983). We believe that Parambasia and Pseudambasia are congeneric, but we cannot diagnose Parambasia based on the type species. We therefore consider it to be a dubious genus and place all species previously considered as Parambasia, except Parambasia forbesi, in the genus Pseudambasia. [details]
