Lindstrom et al. (2011: 680) note that they were unable to obtain type material of this species. They consider it possible that this specific epithet will replace a proposed name but they expect that this species is a synonym of M. pacificus, which has nomenclatural priority. - (19 Dec 2011) - Wendy Guiry
