Opisthophthalmus latimanus keilandsi  Hewitt, 1914: 7-8

Current combination.

Opistophthalmus keilandsi  Hewitt, 1914 [elevated to species status by Prendini, 2001: 27]

Probably not types.

1 ♂ ( Fig. 51 A–BView Figure 51), 1 ♀ ( Fig. 51 C–DView Figure 51) ( ZMH-A0000911), [South Africa], Kapland, Eastern Cape Colony [Eastern Cape], Keilands [32°11 ’00” S, 27°30 ’00” E], Oestl. [to the East], 01.1913, J. Hewitt leg. (no 1728), ded. 06.1914.

Remarks.

Hewitt (1914) listed one male and three females collected in "Keilands near Tsomo C.P., Rev. Fr. Albert Schweiger coll., Fr. P. Boneberg leg. (to the Albany Museum)". The locality of the ZMH specimens matches that of the types. According to the label, they were donated by Hewitt, the original author. However, four specimens (one female, three males) are present in the collections of the Albany Museum and have been designated as lectotype and paralectotypes by Prendini (2001: p.47). The ZMH specimens may have been gifted by Hewitt but do not appear to be types, contra Weidner (1959).
