Saussure & Humbert (1872) gave a more detailed
redescription of the ♀ only, identifi ed the type locality Caicara and stated that the specimen(s) had been collected by Natterer. No specimens found in the MHNG. There is one ♀ type specimen collected by Natterer in the NHMW (Inventory number 2439, Acquisition number 1866.I.47). The Acquisition Register shows that the lot contained only one specimen, so this can be considered the holotype. The generic placement is uncertain.
