Kraepelin 1899: 202 (as G. araneoides  turkestanus  n. var.)

Type locality and specimens. So in Turkestan.  

Oldest label. Galeodes araneoides turkestanus Krpln  , ♀, Mus Berlin, 27.vii.99, Neu Margelan, Turkestan (Kraepelin handwriting). 

Dimensions. Not mentionned. [26.05: 31.02]

Type material. Lectotype ♀ designated here (ZMH-A0000200).

Taxonomic remarks. Kraepelin describes the morphology of both sexes but does not give the number of specimens he examined and a very general locality “Turkestan”. In 1901, he re-described the female but also commented on the coloration of both sexes. The female specimen at ZMHAbout ZMH clearly is part of the type series. There is a male paratype ( Zilch 1946) at the SMFAbout SMF (catalog no. 9903357) with the locality data ( Usbekistan Bochara: Turan) and 1♀ syntype (catalog no. 8812) in ZMBAbout ZMB ( Moritz & Fischer 1980) from the locality Neu Margelan, Turkestan. They may also be part of the type series.

Collection remarks. Interestingly, the original label reads Neu Margelan in Turkestan. Neu-Margelan actually refers to the town of Ferghana (Fargʻona) in the Fergana Region of eastern Uzbekistan, which should be treated as the type locality (not Kazakhstan as in Harvey 2013).
