Not indicated.


First mentioned as nomen nudum in Pérès (1939), but described and made available by Pérès (1946). In both works Pérès obviously used the name not as a separate taxon but rather as descriptive term to fit existing species into his morphological concept. The name is in fact a junior objective synonym of several different species.
