Remarks.

Dahlbom (1854) described Holopyga dohrni  based on a type-series including specimens from Cuba, received from Dohrn, and New York, received from Kriechbaumer. Mocsáry (1889: 122) without type examination placed Holopyga dohrni  Dahlbom in synonymy with of Holopyga ventralis  (Say). This synonym was accepted by several authors ( Dalla Torre 1892: 30, Bodenstein 1951: 720; Krombein 1979: 1225). Bohart and Kimsey (1982: 28) listed type “unknown” and placed Holopyga dohrni  in synonymy with Holopyga ventralis  , with restricted distribution to New York; later Bohart (in Kimsey and Bohart 1991: 236) examined the syntype collected in New York and considered it as a holotype. With this assumption (locality restricted to N.Y.) and term (holotype), Bohart (in Kimsey and Bohart 1991) explicitly indicated that he was selecting from the type series that particular specimen to serve as the name-bearing type (Art. 74.5). Therefore the syntype deposited at the MZLU must be considered as the lectotype.

The two Cuban paralectotypes collected by Dohrn are deposited at the NHRS and belong to a different species, probably to Holopyga cyaniventris  (Cresson, 1865).

Current status.

Holopyga ventralis  (Say, 1824).
