status

 

javanus Saussure, 1859a: 324  -325 [ Polydesmus  ( Leptodesmus  )].

L’île de Java. Unspecified series.

Carl (1902) redescribed the species, illustrating the gonopod, on the basis of a single ♂ “Originalexemplar.” The MHNG collection contains one card-mounted specimen under the name Platyrrhacus javanus  , the name used by Carl. The specimen is labelled “Java, M Melly” and should be regarded as the lectotype, designated by holotype assumption by Carl (1902: 656) who clearly stated that he had the one “Originalexemplar.” The generic placement is uncertain; here we follow Carl (1902).
