    • NOTE: 'the status of schlingeri is unclear, the specimen may merely represent a very dark individual [of A. hollowayae]. We, however, believe the specimen should be named to call attention to this question. If more specimens are collected and remain uniform in coloration, then the species rank is justified. If intermediates are found, then one can accept this as just a dark variety [of A. hollowayae], but even in that case a name is useful' - Thompson & Thompson (2010: 40)]
