status

 

mexicanum Humbert & Saussure, 1869a: 153  [ Craspedosoma  ].

Mexico, Cordillera orientalis. Unspecified number of ♀.

Saussure & Humbert (1872) gave a more detailed redescription. The MHNG collection contains one specimen in alcohol under the name Craspedosoma mexicana  . There is no data label but the identification labels in the jar have “Mexique” written on them. Hoffman (1999) refers to the specimen as holotype but the type series was not specified and it should be considered a syntype.
