Notes
The original description does not give an indication of the number of specimens. Tomlin noted that there were two type specimens when reviewing the material in 1940, McMillan 1985, states that there are 2 syntypes. Cernohorsky, 1984 states: two syntypes of N. oriens Marrat (also types of N. elongata Marrat), and the specimen measuring length 19 mm, width 8.8 mm is here selected as the lectotype. There is one specimen in the lot that matches these measurements and the figure, this has been separated into a separate tube. The remaining specimen is a paralectotype.
