SYNTYPES: ♂ ♀, India, Puducherry, Mayyazhi (former Mahé) District (depository unknown).

Note. There are no syntypes of this species in BMNH. There are 1 ♂ 2 ♀♀ from the type locality deposited in MNHN (see Material examined), moreover the paper by Kirkaldy and Edwards was based on specimens from collection of A. M. Montandon, but we found no evidence the specimens are the syntypes.

Physopelta quadriguttata (partim): BERGROTH (1913): 167 (catalogue, synonym of Ph. quadriguttata ).
