In every reported case, canonical and commentarial, they were reborn as devas.

Thanks. Then why we can’t call them Anagami?

If they were anagami they couldn't be reborn as devas.

Hello:

But the Pure Abodes isn´t a realm of devas?.

It appears Anagamis are born into a different kind of Deva realm.
Perhaps higher than the Deva realm of Sotapanna reborn.
