Notes
Wood & Gallichan, 2008: Type material: Syntypes:- ‘Type’ NMW.1955.158.24175 1 spec. (e); ‘Type’ RBINS.10591 2 spec. (e) Type locality: Ile d’Utilla (‘Île d’Utilla, République du Honduras’ in the introduction of the paper)[M. Chas. T. Simpson] Remarks: Ancey dedicated this species to Bourguignat, ‘J’ai le plaisir d’en faire hommage à M. J. R. Bourguignat, donc l’extrême affabilité à mon égard ne s’est jamais démentie, comme témoignage d’amitié et de reconnaissance.’ Ancey misspelt the genus as Cylyndrella on p. 243, but correctly spelt it in the discussion. Not listed in Johnson (1996). Type evidence: The NMW lot has an Ancey type label bearing the type locality with Simpson as the collector. There is also a Tomlin type label and the Geret sales list confirms a specimen was marked for Tomlin. The RBINS also has an Ancey type label bearing the type locality.
