Remarks on collector.

Hugo Merton (1879-1940) was a German zoologist and Professor of Zoology at the University of Heidelberg. In 1907-1908, he conducted a zoological expedition to the Aroe and Kai Islands with Jean Roux (1876-1939), who was a Swiss zoologist from Basel ( Roux 1910; Merton 1911). They travelled via Singapore and Java, finally arriving in Dobo in January 1908. They surveyed the Aru Islands for four months and the Kai Islands for another month ( May–June). The present specimens were probably collected in 1908.
