Unknown reference error using FastaAlternateReferenceMaker

I tried to run FastaAlternateReferenceMaker and I get the following error:

WARNING 2013-09-18 16:28:28 IntervalList    Ignoring interval for unknown reference: Chr1:3580210-3580286

For all the intervals I submitted. I already looked around on the web, and I did not find any answer, knowing that my chromosome names are all with the 'Chr' format in all the files and that my interval files are tab delimited.

My interval file look like:

@HD     VN:1.4  SO:unsorted
@SQ SN:Chr1 LN:158337067 UR:file:chromosome_3.1.fasta M5:0631b350aa263a0f714de8ba9d609eb0

Chr1 19930459 19930542 - ID=MI0005454_1;accession_number=MI0005454
Chr1 19930511 19930532 - ID=MIMAT0004332_1;accession_number=MIMAT0004332

The header of my interval file is a copy of the Chromosome_3.1.dict
I do not know what is misformated and why I get this error
