Comments: In the original description, McLachlan (1875) did not quote the number of specimens used to describe the species. At the NHMUK collection there are 10 specimens (syntypes), although they all belong to McLachlan collection, only five specimens have a handwriting label of “ Osmylus hyalinatus ML .

In the introduction of the original article McLachlan mentions: “It is to the collections made by Mr. H. Pryer, of Yokohama, and sent by him to his relative, Mr. Wormald, that I am in debt for an opportunity of studying the greater part of the insects here noticed”. Mr. H. Pryer (Henry James Stovin Pryer, 1950–1988), who became a renowned naturalist in Japan, was younger brother of William Burgess Pryer (1843–1899)—the real relative of Percy C. Wormald (Brother-in-law) ( Pereira 2019a,b).

Some specimens were collected by Henry James Stovin Pryer (Yokohama) and the remaining specimens from Kobé were collected by George Lewis (1839–1926), an English entomologist with particular interest in Coleoptera (see ref. Ms/ 204 in LSL, 2020). These specimens were part of the large McLachlan collection purchased from the nephew of Robert McLachlan in 1938.

Original combination: Osmylus multiguttatus McLachlan, 1870: 195

Current combination: Osmylus multiguttatus McLachlan, 1870

Type locality: [“ Hab. Trebizond ”], Turkey, Trabzon (province), Trabzon (city) (41°00’18”N, 39°43’36”E). Syntype ♂ with labels: ( Fig. 22 View FIGURE 22 ) GoogleMaps

Condition of type: good condition.

Missing parts: apical right flagellomeres.

Syntype ♂ with labels: ( Fig. 23 View FIGURE 23 )

Condition of type: good condition.

Missing parts: right flagellomeres, anterior right tarsomeres.

Syntype ♂ with labels: ( Fig. 24 View FIGURE 24 )

Condition of type: good condition.

Missing parts: left flagellomeres.

Comments: In the original description, McLachlan (1870) did not mention the number of specimens used to describe the species. Canbulat (2013) redescribed this species and mentioned that McLachlan described this species based on one only specimen, however in the original description there are different measurements of wings and body length, and in NHMUK there are three specimens from the McLachlan collection, which have handwritten “ Trebizond Deyrolle” labels and a “ type ” label, thus we assume that McLachlan used these three specimens to describe the species.

In the original description McLachlan mentions that the specimens were collected in 1869 by Th. Deyrolle. Theóphile-Louis Deyrolle (1844–1923), was a French painter, illustrator and ceramicist from a family of entomologists and naturalists who owned a well-known taxidermy shop in Paris (Cheishvilli 2013, LOC 2010). These specimens were part of the large McLachlan collection purchased from the nephew of Robert McLachlan in 1938.
