status

 

arboreus Saussure, 1859b: 331  [ Julus  ].

St. Thomas. Unspecified series.

Saussure (1860) stated that he had many specimens of both sexes, and that they were common on St. Thomas, where they were found climbing on trees or curled among the roots. The MHNG collection contains one ♂ and three ♀ in alcohol labelled as types under the name Anadenobolus arboreus  . There are also numerous specimens in two jars under the name Rhinocricus arboreus  , but these were collected after the publication of the original description and therefore cannot be types. The specimens under Anadenobolus  each have the label “St Thomas, Antilles” and are syntypes, notwithstanding the holotype and paratype labels. There are further syntypes in the ZMHB (Mortiz & Fischer, 1975; ZMB211, erroneously referred to as the holotype) and in the MNHN (MY4381) according to their online database.
