Tetraloides heterodactyla ( Heller, 1861) 

Tetralia heterodactyla Heller, 1861: 14  .

Tetralia pubescens Klunzinger, 1913: 316  , pl. 7, fig. 15. Tetralia nigrifrons  forma fusca Serène & Dat, 1957: 290  . Tetralia nigrifrons  forma cyanea Serène & Dat, 1957: 116.

Remarks. Tetralia nigrifrons  forma cyanea Serène & Dat, 1957 (type locality Vietnam), is almost certainly identical with Tetraloides heterodactyla Heller, 1861  . Serène & Dat (1957) described the taxon as having bright blue spots on the ambulatory legs ("... le vif de ses taches bleues sur les péreiopodes)", a diagnostic characterisation of live or freshly preserved specimens ( Castro 1997 b: 46). The type material (a female lectotype and a female paralectotype, NMV 11 a) is in the Naturhistorisches Museum, Vienna.
