totonacus Saussure, 1859a: 321  [ Polydesmus  ( Fontaria  )]. series.

Saussure (1860) gave a more detailed redescription of Pic d’Orizaba, Mexique. Unspecified the ♂ without mentioning the ♀, but implying that he had more than one specimen. The MHNG contains one card-mounted ♂ under the name Fontaria totonacus  . The data label reads “Pic d’Orizaba, Mexique.” There is also a glass vial containing only unidentifiable dry fragments secured by a pin through the cork stopper. Hoffman (1999: 325) designated this specimen as lectotype, suggesting that another syntype (now to be considered as a paralectotype) might be in the BMNH.
