"The original description provided measurements for a single "type" specimen, the holotype, which was illustrated. The remaining 299 specimens are paratypes. Clench (1964: 368, pi. 63, fig. 11) designated and figured as lectotype MCZ 246345. This specimen is here considered to be the originally designated holotype."
