Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority The name has often been credited to "Tiberi, 1855" but this was a name on labels, never published by Tiberi himself. The availability of the name has been credited to Dautzenberg (1891) but the description published by Aradas and Benoit (1872) is earlier.  [details]
