We compared the morphology of the specimens in the Alatina moseri (Mayer, 1906) syntype
(Hawaii) series in the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History collections (items are denoted by catalog reference code beginning USNM; USNM 21800, 22311, 29632, 42112) with the Alatina alata neotype (USNM 1195802; see Lewis et al.
specimens, MNCN, Madrid.
The type-2 or blue-blotched form matches most of the original syntype
series of S.
A three-specimen syntype
series has been recognized (USNM-PAL 7119), but Meek (5) identified a type specimen, representing his choice of a lectotype.
Type material: one syntype
from Argentina, Santiago del Estero province.
Through genetic analyses, the study definitively concluded that the fetus is an African elephant and should no longer be considered a syntype
for Asian elephants.
Chelidoperca investigatoris: Syntype

Identification of Cissia themis was based on the original description included in Butler (1867) and the syntype
in the NHM.

Notropis scepticus (= Notropis photogenis)--UF 165631 (ex BU 54; ex BU 116; no BU number) (340 topotypes, with no formal standing); USNM 328909 (BU 54) (38 topotypes); USNM 31081 (21 syntypes

Also examined was the shell of a syntype
