Campodea fragilis Meinert, 1865
status

 

Campodea fragilis Meinert, 1865 

Naturhistorisk Tidsskrift, 3 (3): 427

Neotype (designated herewith). Denmark. Copenhagen, Amager : 1ex. (no date or collector on label), in 70% alcohol ( NHMD 214817). 

Current status: Valid name.

Additional notes: It was not possible to identify the material studied by Meinert (1865), and therefore we designate a neotype for this species, using a specimen studied by Arevad (1957). This author mentioned that no types were designated in the original description by Meinert (1865), who gave Copenhagen, Denmark, as the type locality. The establishment of the neotype has the purpose of clarifying the taxonomic status and the type locality of the species.
