♀ ( ZMH-A0000915), Neu Caledonien [New Caledonia], 20.08.1900, Bougier leg., MNHN don. ( ZMH Eing. Nr. A27/03).


Fet (2000a) listed a holotype in the MNHN (Paris) and a paratype in the Hamburg collections. The holotype is considered lost by Monod (2011b: 743). The species Ischnurus neocaledonicus  was recently removed from synonymy with Liocheles waigiensis  (Monod, 2011b: 724) and is now part of the genus Hormurus  , which was recently revalidated by Monod and Prendini (2015).

Remarks on collector.

Morat (2010) listed Bougier as a colonisation officer in New Caledonia, where he collected plants for the Paris Museum.
