  1. Bold font indicates the Richtersius coronifer s.s. which is proposed as the new neotype population. Analyses performed: LCM – light contrast microscopy observations, SEM – scanning electron microscope observations, DNA – DNA sequencing, SEX – sex determination by aceto-orcein staining; a = number of adults, h = number of hatchlings (first instars), e = number of eggs
