Laophontodes typicus  – Sars 1908: 270, pl. CLXXXVII (non T. Scott, 1894).

Etymology

The epitheton ‘norvegicus‘ refers to the region where the species was first recorded (cf. Sars 1908).

Under examination for the present study, it transpires that the detailed description of Laophontodes typicus  presented by Sars (1908) was in fact an account of a new species, proposed here as Laophontodes norvegicus  sp. nov. A redescription to establish the new species was not possible here, as the original material is not available (Wilhelmsen, pers. comm.), and no additional material has been reported to date. Thus, a holotype specimen is not available; however, Sars’ (1908) detailed description provides all species information. The type locality is the Norwegian coast, Sars (1908) having found specimens on the southern coast (Bukken) and in the northern Salten fjord.
