Pilsbry and Ferriss (in Ferris 1924) state they have selected a specimen as type, which according to H.B. Baker (1962) is holotype ANSP 84627a. As the label states that the material was collected by Ferriss in 1924, it probably belongs to the original type series. The locality-although more vaguely formulated on the label-corresponds to the area mentioned by Ferriss (1924) for the type series.
