Ischnurus asper  Peters, 1861b: 513-514

Current combination.

Opisthacanthus (Nepabellus) asper  (Peters, 1861).


♀ ( Fig. 35 D–FView Figure 35, ZMH-A0000917), Mozambique, Inhambane [23°51 ’54” S, 35°23 ’00” E], Cotype des Originals [co-type of the original], 05.1911, W. Peters leg ( ZMB).


Three syntypes from Inhambane are present in the ZMB collections ( ZMB/Arach-47, ZMB/Arach-7241). Peters did not provide the number of specimens in his original description. Although referred to as a co-type on the label, the specimen in the ZMH likely belongs to the type series (matching locality and referred to as a gift from the original author) and is thus considered a syntype.
