HOLOTYPE: AMNH 144638 View Materials , adult male, collected at Matagalpa, 2300 ft, 12.52N, 85.58W (Times Atlas), Nicaragua, on 21 April 1917, by W. deW. Miller (no. 534), L. Griscom, and W.B. Richardson. GoogleMaps  

COMMENTS: The AMNH number of the holotype was cited in the original description. The type series was said to comprise eight males, seven females, three sex?, and one juvenile. There are, in fact, nine females in the series used, and perhaps the ‘‘7’’ was a misprint for ‘‘9,’’ as I can see no way to exclude two of them. All of them would have been available to Miller and Griscom. The paratypes are: AMNH 103040 View Materials , 103041 View Materials , male and female, Chontales, February 1908   ; AMNH 103229– 103234 View Materials , two males, four females, Muy Muy, July 1908   ; AMNH 103498 View Materials , 103499 View Materials , male and female, Quilali, January 1909   ; AMNH 103821–103824 View Materials , two males, one female, one female juvenile, Uluce, July 1909   ; AMNH 144637 View Materials , female, Matagalpa, March 1917   ; and AMNH 423592–423596 View Materials , one male, one female, three sex?, Matagalpa, January-February 1917. All of these specimens were collected by W.B. Richardson except AMNH 144637 View Materials , which was collected by Miller, Griscom, and Richardson.
