*Chrysomela ignita* Fabricius, 1787 (now in *Eumolpus*) Un syntype

dry pinned: beetle


Notes:
Traditionally in the C18th only a pair of insect specimens were displayed in the main collection and any 'duplicates' were placed at the end. These two make up a total of four known syntypes of *ignita* Fabricius. Many of the specimens in Hunter's eighteenth century collection were utilised by Fabricius and other contemporary entomologists for describing new species.
