zapotecus Saussure, 1860: 314  -315, fig. 11 [ Polydesmus  ].

Régions chaudes du Mexique, San-Andrès-Tuxtla etc. Unspecified number of ♂ and ♀.

The MHNG collection has one ♀ in the dry collection under the name Fontaria zapotecus  , with the data label “Tuztlant [sic], Mexique, M H de Saussure” and there is no reason to doubt that it is a syntype despite Hoffman’s statement (1999: 353) that he could not find any type specimens in the MHNG.
