status

 

syriacus Humbert & Saussure, 1869b: 686  -687 [ Polydesmus  ( Strongylosoma  )].

Syrie, Gödl (Musée de Vienne). Unspecified number of ♂ and ♀.

Attems (1898) redescribed the species and examined the type specimens, which were stated to be in poor condition. The MHNG collection contains a number of specimens in alcohol identified as Tetrathrosoma syriacum  , but these were collected in the 1970s and are therefore not types. There are six potential syntypes in the NHMW (Inventory number 3576, Acquisition number 1866.I.83). The Acquisition Register states that four specimens collected by Gödel in 1853 were sent to Humbert. It is probable that the other specimens were collected by Edmund Boissier (a Genevan botanist who collected many specimens for Saussure in “Syria” and “Asia Minor”) and are part of the type series used in the original description even if they were not part of the original loan. Rudolf Oskar Gödel-Lannoy was consulgeneral in Beirut from 1850 to 1855 ( Hamernik, 2006) and the type locality could therefore be Beirut.
