  • Specimen Anthenea tuberculosa var. vanstraeleni Engel, 1938

    RBINS, AST.442. IG. 9223. Island Enoe, n°62 on label [Engel (1938) mentioned n° 6 in his paper], 23 Mar. 1929. In the glass there were two specimens, while Engels (1938) mentioned three (presumably one was retained in Amsterdam). The specimen illustrated here is the same previously illustrated by Engel (1938). It seems that it should be treated as the holotype because Engel (1938) stated "Comme exemplaire typique, je désigne l'exemplaire figuré". As this is a very large specimens, it is illustrated by non-stacked photographs made with the TG3 Olympus, and microCT scan snapshots.
