Notes
Crowley & Pain (in Verdcourt, 1963) state that the holotype is at the NHM (marked 648/49). Paratypes at Coryndon Museum (marked 645/49, 647/49) as well as cotypes in both the NHM and CM (marked Sgr 48/48, Sgr 85/48, Sgr 151/48). Leeds material is from the Crowley collection and is ex Leakey, marked paratype both on the label and the specimen, from the type locality. It is marked Sgr 48 (and one other number which is illegible). There is a figure in the paper under number Sgr 48/48 but the specimen does not seem to match it. It does not match any of the measurements or figures in the paper. This should be listed as a Possible Paratype.
