In our paper about stygobiont gastropod species from Yucatán State Mexico (Grego et al. 2019) we reported two new species provisionally placed in the family Cochliopidae: Mexicenotica xochii Grego, Angyal & Beltrán, 2019 and Pyrgophorus thompsoni Grego, Angyal & Beltrán, 2019. However, shortly after its publication, we realised the name Pyrgophorus thompsoni had been already used by Wesselingh 2006 † to name a fossil Miocene species from Indiana, Loreto, Peru (Pyrgophorus thompsoni Wesselingh, 2006† (Wesselingh 2006: 124–125, figs 156–159)). Therefore our previously published name is invalid and cannot be further used. To remove the homonymy we propose the new name Pyrgophorus cenoticus Grego, Angyal and Beltrán, 2019 to substitute the name Pyrgophorus thompsoni Grego, Angyal & Bertrán, 2019.

Etymology: Named after the cenotes of Yucatán, the main habitat of the new species”
