Type locality.

Abor Hills [region in Arunachal Pradesh State, India].

Type material.

Holotype NHMUK 1903.7.1.3082 (Fig. 11J).

Remarks.

The original description clearly stated that this taxon was described based on only one specimen. The NHM collections contain a lot consisting of a single specimen with a label in Godwin-Austen’s handwriting stating “Type”. This specimen matches well with the illustrations and measurements given in the original description, and so we consider this specimen as the holotype fixed by monotypy.
