status

 

mayus Saussure, 1859a: 322  [ Polydesmus  ( Fontaria  )].

Cordillière du Mexique. Unspecified series.

Saussure (1860: 323) placed this name in the synonymy of P. toltecus Saussure, 1859  , and indicated that the original description was based only on the ♂. There are no specimens placed under this name in the MHNG. The ♂ specimen in alcohol placed under the name P. toltecus  in the MHNG could be a syntype of P. mayus  if Saussure (1860) was correct in stating that P. toltecus  was described on the basis of ♀ material only.
