"Two of the four specimens mentioned by Chambers were present as Types, labelled 'Colorado'; one of these, a male, showed the sparse dark dusting noted in the original description and I have made it the Holotype." McDunnough designates a "holotype" from Chambers' syntypes; this is here interpreted as a lectotype designation. -RLHSipe, 2020-08-25
