Abstract: The type specimens of all accepted categories of twenty-eight names of craneflies (twenty-two of Limoniidae and six of Tipulidae), housed in this Museum are recorded. Specimens labeled as types, but which are not types, or are only very dubiously acceptable as types, are recorded in a separate list, in order to assist in future research. Most of the species here catalogued were described by Dr. C.P. Alexander, based upon specimens from this Museum, sent to him by C. Bruch.

Key words: Insecta; Diptera; Craneflies; Limoniidae; Tipulidae; Type specimens.

Resumen: Catálogo de los tipos de típulas (Limoniidae y Tipulidae) (Insecta, Diptera) depositados en el Museo Argentino de Ciencias Naturales, Buenos Aires. Se catalogan los ejemplares típicos de todas las categorías aceptadas, de veintiocho nombres de típulas (veintidós de Limoniidae y seis de Tipulidae). Ejemplares rotulados como tipos, pero que no son tipos, o que solo muy dudosamente serían aceptables como tipos, se incluyen en una lista separada, para facilitar futuras investigaciones. La mayoría de las especies aquí catalogadas fue descrita por el Dr. C.P. Alexander, sobre la base de ejemplares del Museo, enviados por C. Bruch.

Palabras clave: Insecta; Diptera; Típulas; Limoniidae; Tipulidae; Ejemplares tipo.


 

PRESENTATION

A catalog of the type specimens of craneflies, Limoniidae and Tipulidae, housed in the Entomological Division of the Museum is presented, referred to twenty-eight names. Most of the species were described by Dr. C.P. Alexander, based upon specimens from this Museum sent to him by C. Bruch; the identification labels were handwritten by Bruch, copied from letters, and not by Alexander himself. Bruch used to put red framed labels for the specimens, and pale green labels reading "Typus" or "Cotypus"; the cotypus labels seem to have been attached sometimes to syntypes and sometimes to paratypes, making the interpretation uncertain. In several cases it is not possible to conclude about the type category, as the specimens were labelled "Typus", and the whole series bear identical locality labels. In such situations, I leave the question open to future research by specialists, writing for example "Holot.? parat.?" (perhaps some details in the descriptions will sometimes help?). Although several specimens bear a small piece of paper, cut from a handwritten letter, probably written by Alexander, this fact does not assure that Alexander examined and labeled just that specimen.
When no name bearing specimen(s) was (were) formally designated, and the amount of specimens examinated was not mentioned, it is assumed that there was a series of syntypes (recommendation 73F of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, 1999), eventually "single syntypes".
In geographical mentions, if the country is not stated, Argentina is meant.
Specific and subspecific epithets are alphabetically entered in a single list, with a brief bibliographic quotation, localities, and a mention of types, if these were stated. An account of the type specimens actually here housed follows, with a description of all the labels. Taxionomical and nomenclatorial updating is added, following Alexander & Alexander (1970), and Oosterbroek (2010).
Some specimens are labeled as types, but were not mentioned in the original descriptions, and/or were collected and designated later, and published or not; they are not acceptable as types, but in or
der to assist in future research, they are recorded in a separate list, below.
All specimens bear a small inverted label with the entry in the database of the Entomological Division of the Museum, as "MACN-En 0000". Specimen information is currently managed with the application "Aurora" (Rodríguez, 2007-2010).
I am sincerely thankful to Miss Priscila Hanschel for kindly help with the data base management.
Abbreviations used: allot., allotype; coll., collection; det., determinated (identified); handwr., handwritten; holot., holotype; parat., paratype(s); print., printed; Prov., province(s); spec., specimen(s); synt., syntype(s).
