Dall 1908, page 361, Syntype of Cadulus (Gadila) peruvianus Dall, 1908 a single USNM ID is listed. According to Kabat (1996) many of these USNM "holotypes" were multiple specimens and part of a larger lot of syntypes, and these lots were divided up between the USNM and the MCZ, with Dall's paper possibly being published before the MCZ had received and catalogued their portion of the material.
