Syntypes.

1 ♂ ( Fig. 54 C–DView Figure 54), 3 ♂ ( ZMH-A0001070), [Namibia], Gross Namaland, [Karas Region], Kubub [26°44 ’00” S, 16°17 ’00” E], 06.1907, Leonhard Schultze leg., ZMB.

Remarks.

Kraepelin (1908d) mentioned numerous specimens (males, females and juveniles). However, while the bulk of the type series is deposited in the ZMB, four specimens of the type series were gifted to the ZMH. According to Lamoral (1979), 2 syntypes should be deposited in the ZMB. Fet (2000c: 463) listed 21 syntypes in the Berlin collection and one in the AM (a gift from Berlin) but none in Hamburg. Prendini (2001: 40) examined 17 syntypes from the ZMB [14 males (ZMB14993), two males (ZMB14995), one male ( ZMB 14997)] and one syntype male from the AMGS. He also ( Prendini 2001: 48) mentioned in a footnote the existence of three additional specimens from the type series in the ZMB [two males (ZMB14994); one male (ZMB14996)] and four in the ZMH. Currently, the online catalogue of the ZMB reports 20 syntypes [2 males, 12 non-sexed specimens ( ZMB/Arach-14993), 2 males ( ZMB/Arach-14994), 2 males ( ZMB/Arach-14995), 1 male ( ZMB/Arach-14996), 1 male ( ZMB/Arach-14997)].
