Type locality: Napoli, Italy; (Silva & al. 1996: 724) Type: on Derbesia [ = Pedobesia] lamourouxii; KIEL; (Womersley 1984: 133) Notes: "Type material could not be located, so, for the present, the species must be typified by the original figures of Reinke 1879" (O'’Kelly & Yarish (1981: 33). The name has been lectotypified by the original illustration (Reinke 1879, pl. VI: fig. 6, although the authors cited pl. "17") by Brodie, Maggs & John 2007: 117).
