Rhysodesmus toltecus (Saussure, 1859)
status

 

granulosus Saussure, 1859a: 323  [ Polydesmus  ( Leptodesmus  )].

Cordova au Mexique. Unspecified series.

Saussure (1860: 325) placed this name in the synonymy of P. toltecus Saussure, 1859  (and noted that it was a junior homonym of P. granulosus Palissot de Beauvoir, 1805  ), and indicated that the original description was based on the ♀. No specimens are placed under this name in the MHNG but the ♀ in alcohol placed under the name P. tolteca  could be a syntype, although this seems unlikely.
