  Comment: Amin (2013) in in error in treating Acanthogyrus (Acanthosentis) 'commersoni' Gupta et Kajaji, 1969 as an accepted species. Gupta and Kajaji published epithet cameroni, not commersoni. Amin (2005) has clarified 'Acanthogyrus commersoni of Golvan (1994) does not exist. This is a lapsus for Acanthogyrus (Acanthosentis) cameroni Gupta & Kajaji, 1969'
