Here are the details I got over the weekend from Ted Cranford. Also Lorenzo reports that for USNM 593525 female has collection location as " 'el bajo Metisaca' NW of San Felipe". The correct location according to Lorenzo is: "Bajo Mete y saca es close to limit of the Reserve between San Felipe and Rocas Consag." However, he [Lorenzo] does not have dates for the specimens.
