status

 

fraternus Saussure, 1860: 374  , fig. 40 [ Julus  ].

Yautepec dans les terres chaudes de la province de Mexico. One ♀.

The MHNG collection contains one card-mounted ♀ under the name Spirostreptus fraternus  . It is labelled “Atihuayan, Mexique, M H de Saussure” and matches the rough measurements given in the original description. This specimen is presumably the holotype. There is a ♂ specimen in alcohol under the same name, but the identification is given with a question mark so it cannot be part of the type series.
