Remarks

1. Transferred by Steinmann (1989c: 669).

2. The collection date for the allotype, F3233.1698, is given in the original description as 31.XII.1957. From inspection of the label it is probable that 1957 is a mistranscription of 1951.

3. The original description also refers to two paratypes, one male and one female, with the same data, dates 29 Oct. 1951 and 30 Nov. 1951, respectively.
