picteti Saussure, 1859a: 325  -326 [ Polydesmus  ( Paradesmus  )].

Terres chaudes du Mexique. Unspecified series.

Saussure (1860) placed this name in the synonymy of P. klugii Brandt, 1839  . He stated that the latter species is abundant and that he collected it “à Cordova, à Orizaba, à Panuco et sur tout le versant oriental du plateau”. Hoffman (1999: 389) erroneously assumed that the localities given by Saussure for the distribution of P. klugii  referred to P. picteti  whereas Saussure (1860: 294) implied that a single ♀ specimen served for the original description. The MHNG collection contains 14 card-mounted specimens under the name Pachyurus klugii  . No specimen can be identified as the type of P. picteti  from the labels, but one fits the size given in the original description and most of the characters described by Saussure (1860: 295), and it may be the holotype.
