Muséum Paris EY9181; Collection Ernest André 1914; The specimens are labeled types of T. ravouxi, but do not correspond to the original description of André (1896). Instead, they appear to be T. unifasciatus, the hosts of T. ravouxi. André collected the type series of T. ravouxi in a nest of T. unifasciatus. Andre might have kept the host (T. unifasciatus), next to T. ravouxi in the collection, resulting in the present mislabeling and the wrong paratypes (the host T. unifasciatus) sent to Genoa. Perhaps the real T. ravouxi is still in Paris.; geolocate_UncertaintyRadiusMeters: 3036 geolocate_UncertaintyPolygon: Unavailable geolocate_Score: 35 geolocate_Precision: Low geolocate_ParsePattern: NYONS
