REMARKS: Rondani (1862d: 85) described Dexiosoma longifacies   without specifying either the number   or the sex of the specimens and not giving a range of lengths, but from more than one specimen because he indicated: “ vulgaris … a Majo ad Octobrem [common … from May to October]”. We found seven syntypes in this study.
