Salamandra naevia Temminck & Schlegel, 1838 

Temminck & Schlegel, 1838. Fauna Japonica, 3: 122; pl. IV, figs. 4-6; pl. V, figs. 9-10. Current name: Hynobius naevius (Temminck & Schlegel, 1838) 

Lectotype: RMNH 2306 A, 1 ad. Loc.: “ Japon ”. Leg.: Ph.F. von Siebold.

Paralectotypes: RMNH 2306 B-K, 7 ad., 3 hgr. Loc.: “ Japon ”. Leg.: Ph.F. von Siebold.

RMNH 2305, 2 larvae. Loc.: “ Japon ”. Leg.: Ph.F. von Siebold.

RMNH 18559, 1 ad. skeleton. Loc.: “ Japon ”.

Remarks. Hoogmoed (1978: 96) designated RMNH 2306 A as lectotype and considered the type locality as “dans les contrées montueuses des îles Nippon et Sikok, particulièrement dans les provinces Sagami, Sinano, Tanba, Tazima et Tosa, situées entre les 33 et 36 degrés de latitude boreale” [Honshu and Shikoku Islands, Japan]. Hoogmoed listed paralectotypes in the Naturhistorisch Museum Wien in Vienna ( NHMW 2290), the Museum of Comparative Zoology in Cambridge, Massachusetts ( MCZ 7365), the Natural History Museum in London, the Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris ( MNHNP 4690) and the Museum für Naturkunde der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin ( ZMB 3619, 2 ad.), obtained through exchange with the National Museum of Natural History in Leiden. Bauer et al. (1993: 292) observed that there is no evidence of exchange for this material between the Leiden en the Vienna museums. In that case, the status of NHMW 2290 should be considered doubtful.
