status

 

montezumae Saussure, 1859b: 330  [ Julus  ].

Vera-Cruz. Unspecified series.

Saussure (1860) gave a more detailed redescription of both sexes. The MHNG collection contains a ♂ in alcohol under the name Orthoporus montezumae  and a ♀ in alcohol under the name Spirostreptus montezumae  . The ♂ is labelled as holotype but because the type series was unspecified it should be considered as a syntype. The ♀ is identified as montezumae  var. and  may not be a syntype. There is a further syntype in the MNHN (MY4388) according to their online database.
