Remarks. Measurements of the specimens examined are similar to those of the original description, except for S 4, about 25 % longer. Our measurements are also similar to those reported by Ehara & Bhandhufalck (1977) for specimens from Thailand, Moraes et al. (2004 a) for specimens from Sri Lanka, Zannou et al. (2006) for specimens from sub-Saharan Africa and Sourassou et al. (2012) for specimens from Africa and Brazil; in all of those studies, S 4 is also longer than reported in the original description.
