Notes
Type evidence: Ancey (1893d: 43 & 46) did not designate a unique type. The NMW lot has a Tomlin label stating it is ex Ancey and a Geret label bearing the type locality, but without type written. Geret’s sales list confirms a specimen went to Tomlin from Ancey’s collection. This specimen closely matches the measurements listed in the paper.
