According to Hawkes, in a note, dated 1 June 1975 and attached to the sheet of Menzies' 1793 material, P.C. Silva comments that the left-hand specimen was the one figured by Turner (1909, Pl. 81, Figs h and i) and that the specimen represents a lectotype rather than a holotype. This specimen is designated lectotype by Hawkes (1986).
