Nomenclatural tangle

HEMIPTERA: HETEROPTERA: PYRRHOCORIDAE.

It is an unsettled matter whether the genus Probergrothius is valid, or whether the name of the Welwitschia Bug should rather be Odontopus sexpunctatus. Read the details of this taxonomic quandary here: http://insectscience.org/4.14/Robertson_JIS_4_14_2004.pdf.
