Paralectotypes.

1 ♀ ( Fig. 54 A–BView Figure 54), 2 ♀ ( ZMH-A0000913), 2 subadult ♂ ( ZMH-A0002216), [Namibia], Gross Namaland, [Karas Region], Kubub [26°44 ’00” S, 16°17 ’00” E], 06.1907, Leonhard Schultze leg., ZMB.

Remarks.

Kraepelin (1908d) mentioned numerous specimens (male, female and juveniles). The bulk of the original series is deposited in the ZMB, and specimens were donated to the Albany Museum (Grahamstown, South Africa) and to the ZMH. Lectotype (1 female) and paralectotype (1 male) were designated by Lamoral (1979: 750) from the syntype series in the ZMB. Fet (2000c: 463) listed material in Berlin and Albany as well as 6 paralectotypes (2 males, 4 females) in Hamburg. Prendini (2001: 40) examined 25 specimens in the ZMB [one lectotype female, one subadult male paralectotype (ZMB14988); three subadult males paralectotypes (ZMB14989); 4 females, one subadult male, one subadult female, two juvenile females, eight first instars paralectotypes (ZMB14990); two females paralectotypes (ZMB14991); one subadult male paralectotype (ZMB14992); one female paralectotype (ZMB14996)] and two in the AMGS [one female and one subadult male paralectotypes]. There is a discrepancy between the number and sexes of specimens listed by Prendini (2001) and the online catalogue of the ZMB [19 specimens in total: one subadult female ( ZMB/Arach-14988a lectotype); one male, one subadult female, one juvenile male ( ZMB/Arach-14988 b–c, paralectotypes), three males ( ZMB/Arach-14989, paralectotypes); eight females and one juvenile ( ZMB/Arach-14990, paralectotypes); two males ( ZMB/Arach-14991, paralectotypes); one male ( ZMB/Arach-14992, paralectotype)].
