(2009) cited a male lectotype
from Balzapamba, Ecuador, housed in IZP.
Ammodytes japonicus Duncker and Mohr, 1939:20 (in part; original description; lectotype
ZMH H142, 88.5 mm, Hokkaido, Japan; paralectotypes ZMH H143, 51 specimens, 6 of 51 examined, 64.0-86.7 mm, Otaru [="Otaka"], Hokkaido, Japan).
Due to this so far problematic taxon revised here, and a diagnosis proposed for the first time, I identify a lectotype
and several paralectotypes.
(by present designation): male Austria: Upper Styria, Enns river valley near Admont, direction to Frauen mountain, 31III1940, gap of wildbrook, from leaves of hazels, oaks, willows, leg.
Sites and Mbogho (2012) located a single syntype in the Naturhistoriches Museum in Vienna and designated it as the lectotype
. Poisson (1948b) reported that the species has a wide size range of 8.5-10 mm length and 5.2-5.3 mm width.
Both the lectotype
(MZUSP 33471) and the paralactotype (MZUSP 33470) are deposited at Museu de Zoologia, Universidade de Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The plant is of unknown origin, the lectotype
is a Morren Icon at Kew, possibly the same illustration as in La Belgique Horticole.
polyxenens americus is a subspecies described from Colombian material as shown by its original description (KOLLAR, 1850), subsequent literature (ROTHSCHILD & JORDAN, 1906), the material available for this study from the critical analysis of LAMAS (1994) and an examination of the lectotype
Gardner 4955 (lectotype
, designated by Roque & Pirani, 2001:1158, K not seen).
herewith designated; female paralectotype does not belong to Vindullus).
