Notes
Type evidence: This lot has a main label which indicates the material is from Morelet's collection. Tomlin has written 'co-type' on this. The writing on the bottom of the box is that of Preston. The material is from the type locality and there is no indication of a unique type selection in the original description. This is therefore a syntype and has been listed as such by Breure et al, 2018. Other type material: Syntypes NHMUK 1893.2.4.219-223 (5)
