Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorStatus Hutchings & Murray (1984: 52) commented under remarks on S. loveni that "Schmarda's description is based solely on a headless specimen which subsequently has been destroyed. As many of the more important diagnostic characters are associated with the head region, the description is considered grossly inadequate and the species must be regarded as indeterminable. Therefore Augener's (1913) suggestion that S. australis is synonymous with S. incerta is not valid." These authors are correct that the name is indeterminable without the type, although Schmarda actually stated that the head was mutilated, not that it was missing. [details]
