Notes
Tomlin, 1940 and McMillan, 1985 note that there were two syntype lots associated with this name. One lot of 10 specimens and one other lot of 3 specimens. Note by Ian Wallace (13.10.2004): description suggests all this material would have syntype status. Cernohorsky states "ten syntypes of N. cribraria Marrat, and the specimen measuring length 9.6 mm, width 5.6 mm, is here designated as the lectotype." One of the specimens matches these measurements and the figure in the paper. The remaining 9 specimens are paralectotypes. The lot of 3 specimens is deemed to be paralectotype material.
