MYLLAENINI  Ganglbauer 1895

Myllaena Erichson 1837

Notes: Myllaena  is a worldwide genus of more than 250 valid species, of which three including one adventive species are found in New Zealand.

Myllaena intermedia Erichson 1837 

Myllaena intermedia Erichson 1837: 383  . Type locality: [Mark Brandenberg, Germany]. Type depository: ZMHB? #? ST. Note: New Zealand, Kuschel (1990). Distribution: Europe, Russia (European), Turkey, Algeria, Egypt, Morocco, Tunisia, Azores?, Kazakhstan, Cape Verde Is.; Iran?; intro USA, Australia, New Caledonia, New Zealand (AK,TH (intro)).

Myllaena magnicollis Cameron 1947 

Myllaena magnicollis Cameron 1947: 707  . Type locality: N. Auckland: Tangihua Range 1800-2000 ft. Type depository: NZACAbout NZAC LT, 2 PLT; BMNH 1 PLT? (designated below). Distribution: New Zealand (ND).

Remarks. Two specimens were stated explicitly by Cameron to be included in the type series of this species, the

type in the Brookes collection (now NZACAbout NZAC) and cotype in his own collection (now BMNH). However, three

specimens on a single card were designated as “ type ” by Cameron in the NZACAbout NZAC (there were no specimens in the

BMNH though the name and its location are listed in the database). We decided to regard these three NZACAbout NZAC

specimens as syntypes. In order to stabilize this name a lectotype and 2 paralectotypes are here designated for

these specimens of Myllaena magnicollis  .

Type material examined. Lectotype ( NZACAbout NZAC): card-mounted (far left specimen, 10 in pink handwritten at base of

card), “Coll. E. Fairburn. 27 - 10-1936 [in Brookes’ hand] // Tangihua Range N. Auckland. 1900 ’ - 2000 ’ [in

Brookes’ hand] // Myllaena magnicollis Cam.  TYPE [in Cameron’s hand, “ type ” in red ink] // A. E. Brookes

Collection // NZACAbout NZAC specimen database record 1007115 // NZ Arthropod Collection Private Bag 92170 Auckland

New Zealand NZACAbout NZAC 04065731 [barcode label]”. Paralectotypes ( NZACAbout NZAC): 2 (card-mounted with lectotype, middle

specimen mounted dorsally), same data as lectotype.
