insignis Saussure, 1859b: 332  [ Julus  ].

La Plata. Unspecified number of ♂.

Saussure (1860) stated that he had two specimens, one of them damaged. The MHNG collection contains one ♂ in alcohol under the name Pelmatojulus insignis  . The specimen, which has been transferred from the dry collection and is in fragments, is labelled “La Plata, M Melly” and as holotype. The latter label is erroneous and the specimen is a syntype.
