Notes 
From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorRemark Clark has proposed in 1963 to supress the name fusca, arguing that rufescens was better known. Cherbonnier argues against this, indicating that the original holotype for fusca still exists, and that it had been redescribed in 1952 by himself. But Rowe & Gates, 1995 reject this statement, and so does Massin (1996)). [details]
