Notes
Wood & Gallichan, 2008: Type material: Possible Syntype:- NMW.1955.158.24089 1 spec. (e) Type locality: îles Salomon [M. Brazier] Type evidence: Tomlin has written on the back of the label with the NMW specimen that it comes from Ancey’s collection, this agrees with Geret’s sales list. We think the writing on the main label belongs to Ancey; although it is not typical of his labels it is similar to some others that we have seen, and it bears the type locality. The specimen also measures very closely to the dimensions given in the paper.
