mexicanus Saussure, 1859b: 328  [ Oniscodesmus  ].

Mexique. Unspecified series.

Saussure (1860) stated that the specimen(s) came from the “parties chaudes du Mexique (Cordova).” The MHNG collection has one card-mounted ♀ and one ♂ in alcohol under the name Oniscodesmus mexicanus  . Both are labelled “Cordova, Mexique, M H de Saussure” and are from the type series. Hoffman (1979a: 5) designated the ♂, which was transferred to alcohol from the dry collection, as lectotype.
