Type material of Acrobeloides longiuterus, consisting of three female and six male paratypes, were studied, revealing relevant new data to establish the identity of this species with more accuracy. Its detailed original description is fully confirmed although the ovary is situated in a dextral position with respect to the intestine, a remarkable feature that was not mentioned in the original description, but the same as in A. camberenensis where it was regarded as a diagnostic character. Thus, there is no longer any justification to maintain a separate status for these taxa and A. camberenensis is regarded as a junior synonym of A. longiuterus due to priority of publication.
