Notes
Type evidence: The original label is that of Rev. Robert Boog Watson where he clearly states the specimens originated from Drouët; they are also from the type locality of the Azores. There is no mention of a unique type in the original description and ‘type’ is not written on the label. I would therefore consider this to be a possible syntype lot as Drouët is the co-author of this species. Listed as a syntype in Breure et al., 2018. Other type material: Syntype NHMUK 1893.2.4.507–509 - 3 spec. Syntype1893.2.4.510–512 - 3 spec. Syntype MJSD.2012.CO.34 - 46 spec. Syntype ANSP 13246 - 4 spec. Possible Syntypes MCL 45005590 - 2 spec. Possible Syntypes 45005591 - 4 spec. Possible Syntypes NMB 10027 - 1 spec.
