Coecilia hypocyanea Boie, 1827


Coecilia hypocyanea Boie, 1827 

Boie, 1827. Isis v. Oken, 1827: 565.

Current name: Ichthyophis hypocyaneus ( Boie, 1827) 

Paratypes: RMNH 2408, 1 ad. Loc.: “Java” [ Indonesia]. Leg.: H. Kuhl and J.C. van Hasselt. RMNH 2409, 1 larva. Loc.: “Java” [ Indonesia].

Remarks. Häupl, Tiedemann, & Grillistsch (1994: 11) catalogued NHMW 9097 (in the Naturhistorisches Museum Wien in Vienna, exchanged from the National Museum of Natural History in Leiden in 1825) as the holotype. However, RMNH 2408, 2409 and NHMW 9097 are all part of the original type series. See also Taylor (1968: 97). The type locality (“Java”) is restriced to “wet and marshy places on the north coast of Bantam (Province), western Java” by Taylor (1968: 97).
