Note: In accordance with Art. 23.1, which states that an epithet must comprise a single word, the original spelling of the epithet in the name of this species is correctable either to vanbosseae or to van-bosseae (see Art. 60.9 dealing with hyphenation). Egerod (1952: 405) wrote "van-bosseae'', and her choice as first reviser should be followed.
