status

 

lunelii Humbert, 1865: 47  -49, pl. 4, fig. 19 [ Spirostreptus  ].

Putlam, côte occidentale de Ceylan. One ♂.

Carl (1917) re-illustrated the gonopod of the type because Humbert’s original figure was printed too small for some of the detail to be visible. The MHNG collection contains one ♂ specimen in alcohol under the name Thyropygus luneli  . The specimen is in several pieces and there is a vial containing a pair of gonopods. A label in the jar reads “ Thyropygus luneli (Humb.)  type! Ceylon, A. Humbert” indicating that this is the holotype. The MNHN online database states that there is a type (MY4391) in their collection, but since they give the country of origin as India, this must be a mistake.
