Sorry, my mistake, Labbe did describe this as Acanthopsole pselliotes, not Facelina. I was relying on Tardy's paper, he must have relied on Pruvot-Fol 1954, who lists it as Facelina. (Acanthopsole is considered a junior synonym of Facelina, introduced by Trinchese in 1874 for Acanthopsole rubrovittata (Costa, 1866, as Eolis)). Now of course if someone decides that rubrovittata and auriculata (coronata) (type species of genus Facelina) don't belong in the same genus then Acanthopsole could be resurrected!. What tangled webs we weave because we mix nomenclature and phylogeny!

I didn't spot Luis Tocino's record as it wasn't linked to Erwin's list.
