Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHolotype Hershkovitz (1966): "Three of several skeletons received by the Würtemburg Naturaliensammlung, Stuttgart. According to Williams (1928, Zoologica 7:105), a female (skin, sledleton, and foetus) is believed to be one of the original series and is still preserved in the Stuttgart Museum as no. 1122. However, Slijper (1938, Bull. Mus. His. Nat. Belgique, 14 [10]:19) states that 3 cotypes originally were received by the Stuttgart Museum and then preented to P. J. Van Bénéden, who gave one to the Belgian Museum. The remaining two specimens are now in the Louvain Museum. They were collected in 1858 by Kappler (see also Van Bénéden, 1868, Bull. Acad. Roy. Sci. Belgique, 25:96, 115.)" [details]
