Mictyris platycheles H. Milne Edwards, 1852

Labeled as "Myctiris [sic] longicarpus Latr. Australia, Port Jackson, Haswell Type 1882. RBINS INV. 113080. There were 6 female and 1 male Mictyris specimens in the tube. The females were indeed Mictyris longicarpus (retained in RBINS INV. 113080) but the male was Mictyris longicarpus (det. d'Udekem d'Acoz 2016, in using the handbook of Poore 2004 and other references). The erroneously identified male was removed from the sample RBINS INV. 113080 and a new registration number will be given to it; this male is the object of the present file and is illustrated herein. These specimens belong to a collection of Australian crustaceans received from Haswell in 1882 by the RBINS; all these specimens are registered as "topotypes" (most of them abusively).
