of lectotype (which is missing - Logunov supported his views on drawing by Punda,
which he himself considers poorly illustrated - p. 128); he states also that
palpal organs of males of his Y. baltistanus are "virtually indistiguishable"from
three other species, so he separates them by their coloration, however his only
studied male specimen is "strongly damaged and lost their scale coverage"
(page 128). One may ask whether wouldn't be more
advisable to delay separation of this species until fresh specimens were available?
Complaining on lack specimens of di Caporiacco in Museum in Florence Logunov
overlooked note in this Catalogue, and also in Proszynski 1968: 445 that remaining
specimens from di Caporiacco collections are kept in Milano, Italy.
