Opisthophthalmus latimanus karrooensis 

Opisthophthalmus latimanus karrooensis  Purcell, 1899: 1-5

Current combination.

Opistophthalmus karrooensis  Purcell, 1899

Probably not types.

1 ♂, 1 ♀ ( ZMH-A0001866), [South Africa], Cap-Kolonie [Northern Cape], Little Bushmanland [29°34 ’12.8” S, 18°30 ’58.6” E], 27.11.1898, F. Purcell leg.

Remarks.

The types could not be examined nor photographed as they were on loan at the time of writing. Fet (2000c) only listed specimens in the SAMC (62 syntypes) and none in the ZMH. Prendini (2001) designated lectotype and paralectotypes from a series of 129 specimens in the SAMC. The locality data mentioned by Fet (2000c) and Prendini (2001) do not correspond to the data of the present specimens which are thus probably not types. Prendini also confirms that he does not consider these specimens as type (pers. comm.).
