Abstract: The history of the genus Pseudopsylla Froggatt and the rediscovery of the type specimens of P. hirsutus Froggatt, the type species, are discussed. Pseudopsylla is placed as a junior synonym of Lachnodius Maskell on the basis of the morphological and biological similarities between the type species of these genera which are enumerated. Froggatt's species is redescribed and illustrated from the type specimens as a new combination, Lachnodius hirsutus (Froggatt), and a lectotype is designated.
