Comments: When Wagner (1936) published this species description, he intended for the male to be designated as the holotype, but provided the collection data for the female allotype (BC: Chilcotin, 10.viii.1930). Smit & Wright (1965) further note that paratype slides in the Wagner collection, Hamburg, were initially provided with the same Kamloops collection data as the holotype above, but these data were crossed off and changed by Wagner to match the Chilcotin allotype data.

Determination: 56.2 Nycteridopsylla vancouverensis Wagner   ♂ LECTOTYPE des. Smit + Wright ’65 [OL writing].

Comments: Four males and four females collected on two different dates are listed in the type series. Three specimens, one male and two females, are now located in the CNC; three of the remaining specimens were listed by Smit & Wright (1965) as being in the University of British Columbia and the J. Wagner collection in the Zoologisches Museum, Hamburg, Germany. While Wagner noted that there was a singular “Typus” among the eight specimens he examined, he did not specify which one it was, and the slides were not labeled so as to allow for type identification. As such, these specimens were treated by Smit & Wright (1965) as syntypes (see ICZN (1999: Art. 73.2.1)), who designated the sole male in the CNC as the lectotype.
