Trapezia septata Dana, 1852 

Trapezia septata  (var.?) Dana, 1852: 260, pl. 15, fig. 9.

Trapezia reticulata Stimpson, 1858: 37  [35]; Stimpson, 1907: 73, pl. 9, fig. 5. Trapezia areolata var. inermis A. Milne Edwards, 1873: 259  , pl. 10, fig. 6.

Remarks. Dana's type material is lost. The type locality is the Sulu Sea ( Dana 1852: 260), collected somewhere between the Philippine Islands and the north coast of Borneo by the U.S. Exploring Expedition. Considering the confusion between this species and T. areolata Dana  , the designation of a neotype is desirable to stabilise their taxonomy. As such, a male specimen (MNHN­B 27682; cl 8.9 mm, cw 10.8 mm) from the southern coast of Luzon, Philippine Islands, is herein designated as the neotype. It was collected by the MUSORSTOM 2 expedition (unknown station number) during November­December 1980. This specimen is also designated as the neotype of Trapezia reticulata Stimpson, 1858  .

The examination of the type material of T. areolata var. inermis A. Milne Edwards 1873  showed it to be a junior synonym of T. septata ( Castro 1997 a)  .
