Gnomognathus minusculus


minusculus suspectus Carl, 1941b: 704-705 View in CoL , figs 206, 208, 216-218 [ Thyropygus ].

Obere Palnis: Kukkalshola, 1900 m, 1.IV, ♂ Type, 61 Segmente; ♀ Type, 58 Segmente, 3 mm dick. One ♂ and one ♀.

The MHNG collection contains the two specimens in alcohol (MHNH-ARTO-14510). One of the specimens is broken, and they are accompanied by three small vials; one holding two body rings with gonopods, the head and other fragments, one with ♂ second and third legs and one with the ♀ second legs. The label in the larger vial reads “Thyr. min. suspectus Carl, Kukkalshola 1.IV.27, ♂ type 61 segm., ♀ 58 segm (= G)”, indicating that the specimens are the syntypes. The MHNG also has two vials of specimens collected by Carl and listed in the original description but not identified therein as type specimens.
