status

 

cultratus Humbert & Saussure, 1870: 175  [ Spirostreptus  ].

Brasilia. Unspecified series.

Saussure & Humbert (1872) gave a more detailed redescription, stating that the original description was based on three fragments of a ♂ collected by Natterer. No specimens found in the MHNG. The holotype is in the NHMW (Inventory number 2523/2532, Acquisition number 1866.I.92). The specimen was reviewed by Hoffman, who illustrated the head and left gonopod ( Hoffman, 1968a). This specimen has two inventory numbers because it was also described as Alogostreptus nattereri Attems, 1950  , making the latter a junior synonym of U. cultratus ( Humbert & Saussure, 1870)  .
