COMMENTS: The AMNH number of the holotype was cited in the original description. When hallstromi was named, two additional subspecies of P. alberti  had been described. Because only females were known of P. a. buergersi, females of that subspecies, nominate alberti  , and hallstromi were compared and a female holotype selected. Differences between males of nominate alberti  and hallstromi were also noted. Paratypes of hallstromi, all collected in 1950, are: Nondugl, AMNH 705631–705638, two adult males, four immature males, one juvenile male, one female, AMNH 802658, sex?, 8 March–15 May; Kubor Mountains, AMNH 705639–705642, 709647, 788308, two adult males, two immature males, two females, 21– 30 May; Base Camp, Mount Hagen, AMNH 705648–705655, 705655bis, 705656–705660, 788309, 802656, 802657, six adult males, six immature males, one juvenile male, four females, 29 June–27 July; Mount Wilhelm, AMNH 705661bis, adult male, 11 June. Of these, AMNH 705634 and 705654 were sent to AM in 1953; and AMNH 705649 and 705660 were exchanged with FMNH in the 1960s.

Most recent authors consider Pteridophora alberti  monotypic.
