Lepidiota lepidosterna Lea, 1926  

Lepidiota lepidosterna Lea, 1926: 59   .

Holotype (by original designation) female ( Figs. 26–28 View FIGURES 17–28. 17–19 ): Groote Eylandt [13.68°S, 136.72°E] N. Territory N.B. Tindale (typeset on green label); lepidosterna (handwritten) Lea, TYPE (typeset) Groote Eyl (handwritten) | I.15473 Lepidiota lepidosterna Lea Groote Eylandt   (handwritten) TYPE (handwritten in red, at right angle) | SAMA Database No. 25-035295 (typeset on green label) | my holotype label; in SAM. GoogleMaps  

Lea (1926) did not define the type series, seeing an unknown number of males (probably one) (vide Articles 73.1.2, 72.1.1). He unequivocally designated a “Type” with the SAM registration number I.15473 (vide Article 73.1.1). It is presumably the female specimen considered as the holotype by Britton (1978), although not labelled by him, and is the one noted as the holotype by Houston & Weir (1992).
