Remarks.

Kraepelin (1908d) mentioned two juveniles and a subadult female as type specimens. A female and one juvenile are present in the ZMB collections and these were designated as lectotype ( ZMB/Arach-14973) and paralectotype ( ZMB/Arach-14973) by Lamoral (1979: 723).

Remarks on collector.

Leonhard Sigmund Schultze (1872-1955) was a German ethnologist and zoologist. He led a major expedition to Namibia in 1903-1905 ( Schultze 1907) and between March and May 1904. The party visited the area between Angra Pequena and Kubub ( Schultze 1907, 1908 [see map]; also see Harms and Dupérré 2018 for details). After returning to Germany, he was Director of the Museum of Ethnology from 1913 to 1937.
