status

 

orizabae Humbert & Saussure, 1869a: 151  [ Polydesmus (Oxyurus)  ].

Mexico, Orizaba. Unspecified number of ♀.

Saussure & Humbert (1872) gave a more detailed redescription. The MHNG collection contains one ♀ in alcohol under the name Rhysodesmus orizabae  , labelled as a type. The specimen has been transferred from the dry collection and the original identification and locality label is illegible. Hoffman labelled this specimen as the holotype, but since the type series was not specified it should be considered a syntype.
