Notes:
Specimen annotated by Faden (April 1995) as "isotype" but type status uncertain. The protologue (1997, Brittonia 48: 544) cites the type collection as Kuchar 17650 (with isotypes at EA, ETH, FT, K, MO, UPS, US). Listed among “specimen examined” (i.e., paratypes) is Kuchar 17633 (“MOG, destroyed”). Duplicates of both collections are extant at US, with the duplicate of Kuchar 17633 (!) annotated as “holotype”. 2 duplicates of 17650 are annotated as “isotype”. The specimen labels of both collections bear otherwise identical collection data.
