  Comment: Apparently an unresolved homonymy exists between Leioproctus caerulescens (Cockerell, 1929) and Leioproctus caerulescens (Spinola, 1851). Michener (1965) noted the issue, and commented as follows: "[Leioproctus] caerulescens (Cockerell, 1929b) (Paracolletes) n. comb. (A.M.N.H.). Preoccupied by Pasiphae caerulescens Spinola, 1851, transferred to Leioproctus with Spinolapis but probably not a valid taxon, hence not renamed"
