Notes
Breure & Tardy, 2016 state that there are syntypes in Muséum d'histoire naturelle (Geneva MHNG-INVE-91233) figured in the paper, also Naturhistorisches Museum Basel (NMB 597a(7), NMB 597c(6).) Leeds specimen has a Crowley label stating paratype, ex. Moricand coll; there is also a Pain label that states the same thing. It is not from the exact type locality. As there are two labels stating type, it is from the broad type locality, and is ex. Moricand, this specimen should be included as part of the syntype series.
