Palamnaeus thorellii  Fig. 44View Figure 44

Palamnaeus thorellii  Pocock, 1892: 40-41

Current combination.

Heterometrus thorellii  (Pocock, 1892) [Synonymized by Couzijn 1981: 117 to Heterometrus bengalensis  (C. L. Koch, 1841), removed from synonymy by Kovařík (2004: 44)]

Syntypes.

1 ♂ ( Fig. 44 A–BView Figure 44), 1 ♀ ( Fig. 44 C–DView Figure 44, ZMH-A0002219), [Myanmar], [Bago Region], Indien?, Tharrawaddy [17°39 ’14” N, 95°47 ’17” E], VI.1897, Eugene William Oates leg., BMNH don.

Remarks.

Pocock described Palamnaeus thorelli  based on a large series of specimens collected by E. W. Oates in several regions of Burma (now Myanmar) ( Pocock 1892: 39 “….. literally many hundred examples of a species of Palamnaeus  …”). The syntypes in the ZMH are a gift from the BMNH. According to Fet (2000c), only five syntypes (two males, three females) are located in the BMNH, but it is likely that more material is present at the BMNH.

Remarks on collector.

Eugene William Oates (1845-1911) was an English naturalist, mostly interested in birds. In 1867, he was hired by the Public Works Department in India and sent to Burma where he remained until 1899, returning twice to England in the meantime (1881-1883, 1888-1890) ( Anonymous 1912). During his time in Burma, he made large zoological collections, mostly of birds, that were later acquired by the British Museum.
