tarascus Saussure, 1860: 327  , fig. 24 [ Polydesmus  ( Rhachidomorpha  )].

Zone chaude du Mexique, Cordova. Unspecified series.

The MHNG collection contains parts of at least one ♂ specimen in alcohol under the name Polydesmus tarascus  . At least one specimen has been transferred from the dry collection according to a label left in the box. One tube contains two vials, one with body fragments and the other with a pair of gonopods. A second tube contains a vial with body fragments. Both tubes have identification labels and it is not clear if they are different specimens, although the fact that there are two old data labels of the kind used in the dry collection reading “Cordova, Mexique, M H de Saussure” might indicate that there were two. The jar is labelled “Holotypus”, but since the type series was unspecified, the contents should be considered as syntype(s).
