status

 

granosus Humbert & Saussure, 1869b: 674  [ Polydesmus  ( Pachyurus  )].

Les Moluques (Musée de Genève). Unspecified number of ♀.

The MHNG has one card-mounted ♀ and one ♂ in alcohol under the name Pachyurus granosus  . The ♀ has the label “ Pachyurus granosus  ♀ H. et S. Moluques” and is a syntype. The ♂ is in fragments. A typed label in the vial reads “ Pachyurus granosus Sauss.  ♂ TYPUS, ex. Mus. Genf, Moluques.” The original description only treats the ♀ and so the type status of this specimen is dubious.
