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

Brasilia. Unspecified number of ♀.

Saussure & Humbert (1872) gave a more detailed redescription, noting that the specimen(s) had been collected by Natterer. No specimens found in the MHNG. The NHMW contains one broken ♀ (Inventory number 3295, Acquisition number 1866.I.137a). According to the Acquisition Register, P. decolor  and P. nattereri  were described from lot 137 which comprised only two specimens, specimen 3295 can therefore be considered the holotype. Although Attems (1898: 383) placed this species in the genus Leptodesmus  , the generic placement remains uncertain and the genus Leptodesmus  is poorly defined ( Hoffman, 2012).
