NOT.  The name originally referred to is Dalminiastes Jeannel, 1962, which
includes 11 species from Chile and Argentina.  Allodalminiastes is related
genus, established by Franz in 1996.

It is important for users of the Triton database to remember that it
includes only names that have appeared in the Zoological Record since about
1978.  Thus, it does not include a majority of names in "unpopular" groups
of organisms like most insects!
