picteti Humbert, 1865:59  -61, pl.5, fig. 26[ Siphonophora  ].

Montagnes qui dominent Peradenia (sous les écorces). One ♂ and two ♀.

The MHNG collection has two card-mounted ♀ and one ♂ in alcohol under the name Siphonophora picteti  . The jar holding the ♂ contains the label “ Siphonophora Picteti Humb.  , (Type), Peradenia Ceylon, Voy. Humb.” indicating that it is a syntype. One of the dry ♀ has the data label “Peradenia, Ceylan, Vge Humbert,” the other lacks a data label but the species name label in the box has “Ceylan” written in the lower left corner. The jar is labelled as holotype but all three specimens are syntypes.

sallei Saussure, 1860: 300  -301, fig. 8 [ Polydesmus  ].

Antilles, Saint-Domingue, leg. Sallé. Unspecified number of ♀.

The MHNG collection has a card-mounted ♀ specimen and a ♂ in alcohol under the name Leptodesmus sallei  . The ♂ is from Haiti, but the ♀ has the data label “St Domingue, Antilles, M H de Saussure” and is a syntype. Hoffman (1999) refers to this specimen as the holotype without justification. The generic placement follows Pérez-Asso (2010).
