Antarctia multifarior Burmeister, 1878: 452  Fig. 23

Current identity.

Paracles multifarior  (Burmeister, 1878), a junior subjective synonym of Paracles fusca  (Walker, 1856).

Material.

Described on the basis of an unspecified number of specimens from Buénos-Ayres [Buenos Aires].

Type locality.

Buénos-Ayres [Buenos Aires, Argentina].

MACN.

In the Burmeister collection there are two male specimens with no label pinned on them. They are in quite good condition and have little information on the square label: "multifarior Berg Buen[os] Air[es]" ( Burmeister’s handwriting) (Fig. 23). We hereby designate the first male specimen as lectotype in [MACN] with a red label with the inscription "Lectotype ♂ Anctartia multifarior  Burmeister designated by Beccacece, Vincent & Navarro." The other specimen is designated as a paralectotype.

Remarks.

There is a female of Paracles azollae  (Berg, 1877) incorrectly placed in the series below the main label.
