Cheiloneurus chlorodryini Perkins  

Guerrieri and Viggiani (2005) stated that they examined the holotype of this species deposited at the BBMH. In fact, the only specimen under this name in that collection bears a Perkins’ handwritten label with the word ‘‘type’’. Since Perkins (1906) did not indicate the number of specimens collected or that the species was described from a single specimen, in the interest of nomenclatural stability, this specimen is here designated LECTOTYPE.
