Notes
Type evidence: From the type locality of Mauritius. The main label is Fulton’s, who was known to have sold Morelet’s collection, and Tomlin has written on the box bottom indicating it is 'ex. coll. Morelet'. There is no reference to a unique type in the original description. This specimen is therefore a syntype and has been listed as such in Breure et al., 2018. Other type material: Possible syntypes NHMUK 1893.2.4.1544-1546 [could not be located for Breure et al,2018 publication]
