Part Details
Part Name Condition Disposition # Remarks
whole animal (70% ethanol) unchecked in collection 1
Remarks: 1 E. tibiana & tubes; 2 other tubes. See G. Hartman-Schröder correspondence, 14.vi.1984. Fauchald (1992:319) invalidly designated the MCZ specimen listed as no. 4 by Ehlers, 1887: 90 (Caribbean Sea, 22°09'30"N, 82°21'30"W, 443 m, 'Sigsbee' sta. 11) as lectotype. That specimen is not from the type locality and was collected in 1877-78 so it is not one of the original syntypes. Although Ehlers (1887) did not examine Pourtalès' types, they are extant. As MCZ 2006 is the specimen described by Pourtalès, it is debatable whether it is the holotype or one of the syntypes (Pourtalès implied that there was more than one specimen). If a syntype, then 2006 should be designated the lectotype.
