For most type specimens their registration numbers indicate a date before the publication date, as these were specimens Walker described from the BMNH collection. W. Saunders’s collection, these came to the BMNH in 1868 and bear the registration number ‘68 4 ‘. For one specimen there seems some doubt that it is a type (see Sphenorhina duodecimpunctata Walker). With respect to Walker’s (1851) publication an unusual situation arises following the original description of Neosphenorhina ocellata (Walker).
381. ssp. propinqua (Walker, 1851: 671) (Triecphora propinqua); Metcalf, 1961: 150151. Holotype †, Venezuela (BMNH).

[The type genitalia (as ‘holotype’) were figured by China & Myers, 1934: 453, fig. 1b, 1i, 2c. The types are referable to Williams’s (1921) plate 1, figs 3-4. Distant’s varieties ‘a’ and ‘b’ were later named by Lallemand (1912) (see below).
Phalerata). We assume, that in all these cases the type data applies to all taxa that come above the data or up until the next set of data. This interpretation is contrary to Metcalf’s, 1961: 514 catalogue entry for Jacobi’s description of pica, which gives Bolivia (only) for the nominate form. In Jacobi’s 1942 publication (omitted from Metcalf’s (1961) catalogue) he unaccountably gives Sphenorhina in two different formats. It appears first as ‘T. (Sphenorhina)’ for three of the species listed under Tomaspis (trifasciata Melichar, pubescens (Fabricius) and discors Jacobi) and secondly as a general heading for several other species.
