From editor or global species database
Editor's comment indeterminable according to Zibrowius 1973; cannot be a Placostegus by the shape of the uncinus figured (Fig.8) [details]

Spelling McIntosh used the accented spelling 'mörchii'. This should be 'morchii' today, and should NOT be changed to moerchii, as Mörch (also as Mørch) was Scandinavian Danish, not German. [details]
