He also reported the species as "not recognizable" and noted that the original specimen, reported by Leach as in the British Museum, was lost.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomic remark Genus Alecto has no standing, as Alecto horrida is quite unrecognizable from the description or the figure, and the original specimen has been lost. Genus Alectro Say, 1825, is clearly an emendation of Alecto, as Say referred the genus to Leach (AH Clark, 1908). [details]
