"Womersley & Norris (1971, p. 5) designated a Fremantle specimen 'Herb. Harvey TCD' as lectotype and noted that the specimen was labeled 'original'. The lectotype (TCD 0011789) bears this label and also the annotation 'TYPE (HBSW)' (=Womersley). A second specimen in TCD (TCD 0015030) from Harvey's Travelling Set (#274) is also from Fremantle ('Beach') and is labeled Kallymenia cribrosa in Harvey's hand. This is presumably the specimen Harvey had to hand when describing the species, which was done 'at sea' when Harvey only had access to his Travelling Set specimens (see Parnell et al., 2010, p. 122)." (Saunders et al. 2017: 113). - (28 Jun 2017) - M.D. Guiry
