Dear Jeremy,

I have been checking the literature and the original diagnosis of L. barozii is in Noël D., 1972 not 1973.

In the Farinacci & Howe catalog the species appears as L. barozzi Noël, 1972

The manuscript was déposé in July 1972 but the bulletin impression finished in May 1973. Unfortunately, is almost impossible to find it using that year (1973) as reference.

I have noticed that the publication is not available in the site. If you think is a good idea to add it I can send you the link or the PDF by email.

Kind regards,
