Leptodesmus nattereri ( Humbert & Saussure, 1870 )
status

 

nattereri Humbert & Saussure, 1870: 173  [ Polydesmus (Oxyurus)  ].

Brasilia. Unspecified number of ♀.

Saussure & Humbert (1872) gave a more detailed redescription. No specimens found in the MHNG. The NHMW contains one ♀ (Inventory number 3296, Acquisition number 1866.I.137b). According to the Acquisition Register, P. decolor  and P. nattereri  were described from lot 137 which comprised only two specimens; this specimen is therefore the holotype. The generic placement is uncertain and the genus Leptodesmus  remains poorly defined ( Hoffman, 2012).
