Number of Uses of Name per Year
A nomen nodum. The name only appears in a published list from a museum collection with no description; specimen can no longer be found, so identity cannot be determined. Nomenclatural usage from that time would imply the name was most likely applied to a specimen which would now be part of the genus Ucides.
