  Comment: Amin (2013) treats Acanthocephalus elongatus Van Cleave, 1937 both as accepted and as a synonym of Pseudoacanthocephalus elongatus; perhaps this is caused by uncertainty in identification, as Amin et al. 2014 reads 'The cement gland pattern could not be discerned in P. elongat[us] and P. paratiensis as their descriptions were based on females only; no trunk cones were described or illustrated'
