status

 

carolinensis Saussure, 1859a: 325  [ Polydesmus  ( Paradesmus  )].

Caroline du Sud. Unspecified series.

Saussure (1860) gives a much more detailed redescription which mentions both sexes. Saussure & Humbert (1872) considered the name to be a junior synonym of P. erythropygus Brandt, 1839  . Carl (1903) described and illustrated the gonopod of an “Originalexemplar” of P. carolinensis  under the name Euryurus erythropygus  . The MHNG collection has two card-mounted specimens under the name Pachyurus carolinensis  . One is a ♂ labelled “Caroline S., Etats Unis” the other is ♀ and unlabelled. Hoffman refers to a ♂ holotype in the MHNG but because the original series was unspecified and the redescription covers both sexes, these specimens should be considered syntypes. There is a further syntype in the ZMHB ( Moritz & Fischer, 1978; ZMB206, erroneously referred to as the holotype).
