Eucnemis seychellensis Tschudi, 1838 

Tschudi, 1838. Classif. Batr.: 35, 76.

Current name: Tachycnemis seychellensis ( Duméril and Bibron, 1841) 

Syntype: RMNH 1767, 1 ex. Loc.: “ Seychelles ”. Leg.: F. Péron.

Remarks. A syntype is MNHNP 4592, according to Roux-Estève (1979: 26). Tschudi (1838: 35) examined several specimens collected by Péron in Seychelles: “Zuerst brachten Péron und Lesueur von Seychelles alte, hernach Quoy und Gaimard junge Exemplare dieser Species angehöriger Thiere von Madagascar ”. Therefore we consider RMNH 1767 as part of the type series of Eucnemis seychellensis Tschudi, 1838  .
