Notes
Type evidence: Pallary (1923b) does not indicate a unique type in his original description. The NMW specimens have a Paul Pallary label and are from the type locality of Taza, but ‘type’ is not written on them. They are authors topotypes and possible syntypes; it is unknown at present if further material is in the museum at Rabat.
