Bryolimnia MONODONTA   Kaye, 1922

Proceedings of the Zoological Society of London 67, 991–998 [993], pl. I: fig. 20. Combination still valid (see Poole 1989).

Holotype, male, pinned:

Specimen data: “Siparia 16 / 6 / 18 ” [Handwritten (by Lamont)]. “Lamont Collection 1950 - 16 ” [Printed] with label with “ TYPE ” [Handwritten in red ink], glued to it. “Bryolimnia monodonta Kaye   ” [Handwritten Lamont cabinet label]. Label bearing justification of its holotype status written by M.J.W.Cook, 1997. Remarks: This specimen collected at Siparia, Trinidad, 16 June 1918, by Sir N. Lamont is unambiguously the holotype and is illustrated in colour in Pl. I: fig. 20 ( Kaye 1922, Kaye & Lamont 1927). Poole (1989) erroneously suggests that the [holo] type is in the BM(NH).
