Comment by J. Proszynski: Some confusion about types of this species in Logunov, Marusik 2003b: 98. The only specimen known to be seen by Simon himself is kept in the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris and is labelled "Yllenus flavociliatus Simon, Mongolia Sept", [by the way, "Sept" does not mean month of September, but is an abbreviation of "Septentrionalis" meaning Northern = "Northern Mongolia"] and given the collection number "13347". Two females of that species in the collection of the Institute of Zoology in Skt Petersburg were found by myself among non-identified collections in then Leningrad Institute of Zoology (ZIN) in December 1971-March 1972, I have identified them and labelled. The label is signed "det. J. Proszynski". Why specimens from obviously the same expedition of Potanin were not labelled by Simon? Most probably they have not been sent to Simon, and were left in Skt Petersburg. They are not syntypes, and have no nomenclatorical standing. They could be called "topotypes" ["specimes from the original locality"], but none of them can be designated "lectotype".
