Wood & Gallichan, 2008: Type material: Syntype:- ‘Type’ NMW.1955.158.24184 1 spec. (e); Possible Syntype:- ‘Type’ RBINS.10591 1 spec. (e) Type locality: Montana [L. Bruner] Type evidence: The NMW specimen has an Ancey type label bearing the type locality and was collected by Bruner. The Geret sales list shows a type was originally meant for Connolly, but Tomlin’s initials against it suggest it went to him instead. The RBINS lot has a Dautzenberg type label stating it is Geret ex Ancey, from the type locality and ex Bruner, but there is no Ancey label.
