The latter genus contained a single species which thus becomes a new combination: Colpocephalum pricei (Tendeiro, 1989), comb. n. Further synonymies include 12 species (Colpocephalum turbinatum Denny, 1842 = C. wemecki Orfila, 1959, syn. n.; C. nanum Piaget, 1890 =C. meridionale Perez-Jimenez et al., 1988, syn. n.; C. trachelioti Price & Beer, 1963= C. aegypii Tendeiro, 1989, syn. n.; C. ateri Price & Beer, 1964 = C. sinuosum Tendeiro & Mendes, 1994, syn. n.; C. maculatum Piaget, 1880 = C. chimangoi Tendeiro & Mendes, 1994, syn. n.;C. holzenthali Clayton & Price, 1989 = C. violanii Tendeiro & Mendes, 1994, syn. n.; Nosopon milvus Tendeiro, 1959= N. aduncum Tendeiro, 1993, syn. n.; Laembothrion vulturis (F., 1775) = L. gigas Nitzsch, 1861, syn. n.; L. tinnunculi (L., 1758) = L. iberum Pérez-Jiménez et al., 1988, syn. n.;Craspedorrhynchus ranjhae Ansari, 1955 = C. pennati Gallego, Martin Mateo & Aguirre, 1987, syn. n.; Degeeriella rufa (Burmeister, 1838) = D. carrikeri Orfila, 1959, syn. n.; Falcolipeurus assessor (Giebel, 1874) = Trollipeurus kleinmachnowensis Zlotorzycka, 1963, syn. n.), and 5 subspecies (Colpocephalum zerafae Ansari, 1955 =C. zerafae biarmicus Tendeiro, 1988, syn. n.; C. subzerafae Tendeiro, 1988 =C. subzerafae exiguum Tendeiro, 1988, syn. n.; Nosopon lucidum (Rudow, 1869) = N. lucidum pyargus Tendeiro, 1959, syn. n.; Laemobothrion vulturis (F., 1775) = L. vulturis daneckii Zlotorzycka, 1969, syn. n.; Degeeriella mookerjeei Clay, 1957 =D. mookerjeei pilgrimi Tendeiro, 1979, syn. n.).
