REMARKS

The original description was based on more than one specimen, as it listed multiple localities and mentioned both adults and young individuals. The species was not listed by Fischer-Piette (1950: 170, 171). The figures of Ancey (1904) are not detailed but are a reasonable match to the single specimen in MNHN IM-2000-20013, but no lectotype is here designated, pending further research in other museums (BPBM, MCZ, NMW, IRSNB) holding type or possible type material ( Wood & Gallichan 2008: 61, 62). One label says “Ancey 1907”, which suggests the specimen may have been received from Ancey by MNHN after publication of the description.
