status

 

vermiformis Saussure, 1859a: 326  [ Polydesmus  ( Strongylosoma  )].

Terres chaudes du Mexique. Unspecified series.

Saussure (1860) stated that he had several ♀ specimens, and gave the locality as “terres chaudes du versant oriental de la Cordillère”. The MHNG collection contains a cardmounted ♀ under the name Leptodesmus vermiformis  . It has the data label “Cordova, Mexique, M H de Saussure” and is almost certainly a syntype.
