 Cernohorsky, W.O. 1991. p.124 [ S. padangensis (Thiele) is a composite species: the larger of the two syntypes in ZMHU (illustrated by Thiele, 1925, in fig. 6) was designated the lectotype by Cernohorsky (1991) and the smaller specimen (illustrated by Thiele, 1925, in fig. 7) is the species "Ziba" insculpta (A. Adams, 1853). Thiele realized that he had two somewhat different "forms" in front of him but suspected that sexual dimorphism was involved. ]  Type information
