Notes
Coan & Kabat, 2012 state that these specimens are syntypes. Leeds material does not have a Hanley label, but is mentioned in Hanley's handwritten catalogue. Two modern labels with lot state that this is a syntype lot. Note from SW (9/1979) reads: the figd. valve is probably the LV (opposite) of the odd RV. Most probably = syntypes. None of the specimens match the figure in the later citation.
