Occemya meigeni


" Occemya meigeni  R. D."

A female of Thecophora atra (Fabricius, 1775)  . The specimen is well preserved apart from lacking the right middle leg and the right wing.

The specimen bears the following labels: (1) " O. / meigeni  / ɗ / coll. Big." [round, white label]; (2) " Occemya  / meigeni  R. D." [light­blue label]; (3) " Syntypus " [printed].

This specimen was determined and labelled by Robineau­Desvoidy and is evidently a syntype of Occemya meigeni Robineau­Desvoidy, 1853: 135  ­136. Since this specimen appears to be the only known syntype of Occemya meigeni  it is herewith designated lectotype and the following label has been added: " Lectotypus / Occemya meigeni  / Robineau­ Desvoidy, 1853 / des. Stuke & Clements, 2005 " [red label, printed].

The synonymy with Thecophora atra (Fabricius, 1775)  proposed by Chvála & Smith (1988) is supported.
