Note: Original plate for illustration also mounted and in the collection (BISH!). St. John cited "other collections with the same data, Long 2365, 2368, and 2369 (Univ. Hawaii) are evidently duplicates and therefore isotypes." But they must be considered paratypes, since they have different collection numbers.
