Collection: Leeds Museums and Galleries (Charles A. Maynard; Terry E. Crowley)
Catalogue No.: LEEDM.C.1993.5.16336

Notes
Harasewych et al. 2007 state that the original species description did not distinguish amoung the 1540 specimens examined, and that the species is based on these 1540 syntypes. They go on to designate a lectotype lot from MCZ (MCZ_76235) and state that the remaining 1539 syntypes are considered paralectotypes, including MCZ 357004, MCZ 76236, MCZ 118237, and USNM 420090. It has been assumed that the Leeds specimens were part of the material examined by Maynard, and classed as part of the type series, and so are also paralectotypes. Leeds material are ex. Crowley collection, and the Leeds database states that they are ex Maynard. Label states that they are ex. Salisbury collection, which contains Maynard types. There is an original label from Tomlin stating that the specimens are paratypes, Crowley's label also states that they are paratypes. It is from the type locality.
