Genus Physopelta Amyot & Serville, 1843

Distant's (1903b: 97) designation of Cimex albofasciatus De Geer as the type species of Physopelta is unavailable, because its synonymy with Physopelta erythrocephala Amyot & Serville, an originally included nominal species, was not mentioned by Distant. The extralimital subgenus Delacampius Distant, 1903 was elevated to generic rank by StehlĂ­k (2005a); currently there are no subgenera recognised within Physopelta.
