Scientific synonyms and common names

Desmopterus gardineri Tesch, 1910a


Desmopterus gardinerii n. sp. Tesch, 1910a: 68; 1910b: 168

This nominal species may be synonymous with the preceding one, as the only typical difference is found in the number of wing muscles and these may change due to contraction. Frontier (1973a), however, found D. papilio and D. gardineri in freshly preserved or living specimens sympatric and considered both distinct species.
