Notes
Wood & Gallichan, 2008: Type material: Possible Syntype:- NMW.1955.158.24200 1 spec. (e) Type locality: Cambodge [Dr Harmand] Type evidence: The NMW lot has a Geret label bearing the type locality and Tomlin has written ‘coll. Ancey’, which complements the Geret sales list. Type is not written on the label. The NMW specimen is slightly smaller than the measurements given in the paper. The Geret sales list states a specimen of this species from Cambodge was sold to Connolly in 1923 but does not suggest it was a type. This is likely to be found at BMNH.
