Additional information: "The Drury collection was sold at auction shortly after his death, and no specimens have thus far been recognized as Drury types. It is doubtful that any exist today." (Miller & Brown, 1981:211). "The type is probably in Sydney (Mcleay Museum, University of Sydney) with the rest of the Drury collection (now apparently moved to C.S.I.R.O., Canberra)." (d'Abrera, 1997:4).
