status

 

nahuus Humbert & Saussure, 1869a: 150  -151 [ Polydesmus  ( Fontaria  )].

Mexico temperata. Unspecified number of ♂ and ♀.

Saussure & Humbert (1872) gave a more detailed redescription, the locality “Cordillère orientale” and stated that they had one ♂ and seven ♀. The MHNG collection contains one specimen in alcohol under the name Fontaria nahua  . There is no data label but the identification labels in the jar have “Mexique” or “Cordova” written on them. One of these labels reads “ Polydesmus nahua Sss  et H. (type) Cordova” indicating that it is a syntype. There is one broken ♀ syntype in the NHMW (Inventory number 3333, Acquisition number 1866.I.B) donated by Humbert and Saussure. The whereabouts of the other syntypes is unknown.
