humbertiana Saussure in Humbert, 1893: 89, pl. 14, fig. 13 [ Glomeris  ].

Pitons, Mont Salève. Based on a coloured drawing by Humbert.

The MHNG collection contains two specimens under this name. They were collected on the Salève by Zehntner and are not part of the type series because Saussure stated that the type specimen had been lost and that he described it based on the colour pattern illustrated by Humbert. Hoess & Scholl (2001) discussed the confusion surrounding patterned Glomeris  , and demonstrated that recent specimens of patterned Glomeris  from Mont Salève belonged to G. connexa  .

America borealis. Unspecified number of ♂.

Saussure & Humbert (1872) gave a more detailed redescription, and indicated that they had two specimens. No specimens found in the MHNG or in the NHMW. Hoffman (1999) stated that the holotype (actually a syntype) was in the NHMW. Although it appears in the acquisitions register (Acquisition number 1866.I.42), the specimen is apparently lost.
