status

 

woodianus Humbert & Saussure, 1869a: 152  [ Polydesmus  ( Scytonotus  )]

Mexico, Cordillera orientalis. Unspecified number of ♂ and ♀.

Saussure & Humbert (1872) gave a more detailed redescription and the localities Orizaba and Moyoapan. They also stated that they had 22 specimens collected by Sumichrast. The MHNG collection has ten card-mounted specimens under the name Peridontodesmus woodianus  . One specimen has the label “Orizaba, Mexique, env. Sumichrast.” Six smaller specimens mounted on one card have the label “3a”; they are badly damaged. Two specimens mounted on one card also have the label “3a.” There is one unlabelled specimen. Although only one specimen is labelled with the type locality and collector, it seems probable that all of these specimens are syntypes.
