Ptochoryctis tsugensis Kearfott, 1910

Kearfott 1910, Page 347, Syntype of Ptochoryctis tsugensis
"Described from 8 males and 8 females bred from larvae on a Japanese species of hemlock, Tsuga sieboldi, at a nursery in New Jersey ; issued May 7 to 23..." Though this specimen is recorded in MCZ Type Book as a "paratype," it appears more properly to be a syntype as per wording of original description: Kearfott mentions multiple "cotypes" without designating a primary type. All of these should probably be considered syntypes. RLHawkins, 2020-06-23
