scientific name

status

 

Subfamily Gumillinae Navás, 1912: 58

Original combination: Osmylus longicornis Walker, 1853: 235

Current combination: Gumilla longicornis ( Walker, 1853)

Type locality: [“ Georgia ”], country unknown (probably in South America).

Holotype (sex undetermined) (by monotypy) with labels: ( Fig. 2 View FIGURE 2 )

Condition of type: bad condition, abdominal apex and genitalia lost and could not be located, some flagellomeres are glued on the double mounted platform, there is glue on dorsal region of mesothorax, apex of left forewing damaged, ventral region of thorax is glued on the double mounted platform.

Missing parts: scapes, pedicels, flagellomeres except for some that are glued on the double mounted platform, right forewing, apical part of right hindwing, apex of abdomen.

Comments: Type locality is unknown. In the original description Walker cited that the type locality was Georgia, however no geographic locality in South America matches that name. Martins et al. (2016) recently outlined the confusion regarding the type locality of G. longicornis , and concluded it is considered likely a mislabelling with the actual type locality being in northern South America. In the original description Walker mentioned that the specimen is from “ Mr. Abbot’s collection” (John Abbot) who was entomologist and ornithologist (Calhoun & Johnston, 2010), who’s specimens were later deposited in the British Museum.
