( Fig. 4 D–EView Figure 4) Juvenile ( ZMH-A0000902), Argentinien [Argentina], [Buenos Aires], Bahia Blanca [38°43 ’10” S, 62°16 ’20” W], Friesen leg., ded. 22.06.1898.

As type material, Kraepelin (1911) listed a juvenile from Bahia Blanca. This specimen is designated here as the lectotype. He also mentions the presence of a male without precise locality in the ZMH collections, which at that time were still housed at the “Realgymnasium” in Hamburg and only later moved to a new museum building. This specimen is a paralectotype.
