Editors' Notes
[Campbell [1954, p.D129] considers Sethocapsa Haeckel, 1881a to be an objective synonym of Adelocyrtis Pantanelli, 1880a. He designates Adelocyrtis papa Pantanelli, 1880 as the type species of Adelocyrtis and only by inference of Sethocapsa. Therefore, we consider Foreman's designation [1973, p.267] of Sethocapsa cometa [Pantanelli] in Rust, 1885b, p.306, pl.36, fig.15, to be valid.]
