status

 

chichimecus Saussure, 1859b: 331  [ Julus  ].

Mexique, Cordova. Unspecified series.

Saussure (1860) gave a more detailed redescription of the ♀, indicating that he had more than one specimen and stating that he had not found the ♂. The MHNG collection contains a directly pinned ♀ specimen under the name Spirobolus chichimecus  and a ♀ in alcohol under the name Rhinocricus chichimecus  . The dry specimen, which has a card mount under the middle of the body, is labelled “Mexique, Voyage de Saussure.” The specimen in alcohol does not have a data label, but has “Mexique” on the identification labels. Both specimens are presumably syntypes. The status of the specimen in alcohol is less certain because it could have been acquired with the ♂ specimen in alcohol which was once placed under this name, presumably after the original description was published, and was subsequently identified by Carl as A. zapotecus  . There is a syntype in the MNHN (MY4384) according to their online database.
