Pilumnus vespertilio (Fabricius, 1793)

labelled as "Pilumnus tomentosus latreille, Australia, Port Jackson, Haswell Type 1882". RBINS INV. 113838. The vial includes 4 adult males. The specimen illustrated herein was partly denuded dorsally, when it was examined and photographed by C. d'Udekem d'Acoz in 2016. The identification by Haswell seems to be incorrect and the specimens were re-identified as Pilumnus vespertilio by C. d'Udekem d'Acoz on December 8th, 2016. These specimens belong to a batch of specimens receivedby the RBINS in 1882 from Haswell, and which are abusively registered as "topotypes".
