Notes
Harasewych et al. 2007 state that Maynard did not base his description on one specimen, and therefore that all material examined is classed as part of the type series (795 specimens in total). They go on to designate a lectotype lot from MCZ (MCZ 76101) and state that all of the other 794 specimens can be considered paralectotypes including MCZ 76102, USNM 420104, and now also the Leeds specimen. Leeds material does not have a Maynard label, but their database states that this specimen is ex. Maynard, ex. Liverpool, where some of Maynard's material went. It is also from the Crowley collection. There is a more modern label stating paratype, it is from the type locality. Specimen label on the bottom of the box states that this is ex. Leman collection but have not found reference to this in any literature.
