Remarks on collector.

Clas Michael Naumann zu Königsbruck (1939-2004) was a Professor of Zoology at the University of Bonn and director of the Museum Alexander König in Bonn. His main interest was the biogeography of Afghanistan where he traveled extensively. Ernst Kullmann (1931-1996) was a German arachnologist and director of the Cologne Zoological Garden. The travel route of the "deutschen zoologish-botanischen Expedition 1971", in which Naumann and Kullman took part, is presented in the map of Naumann and Niethammer (1973: map p. 239).
