Zompro, O., & Brock, P. D. (2003). Catalogue of type-material of stick-insects housed in the Museum d'histoire naturelle, Geneva, with descriptions of some new taxa (Insecta: Phasmatodea). Revue Suisse de Zoologie, 110(1), 3-43.

Type specimens for 157 species-group names of Phasmida have been identified in the collection of the Museum d'histoire naturelle, Geneva. The names are listed alphabetically, with the number of specimens, sex and locality data. The material includes most species described by Saussure and the majority of those described by Carl; in addition there is material of Bolivar, Brock, Brunner von Wattenwyl, Fritzsche & Gitsaga, Gunther, Harz, Kirby, Redtenbacher, Werner and Zompro. Clitumnus humberti Carl, 1913 is re-named Ramulus carli Zompro nom. n. Lectotypes are designated for Xera debilis Redtenbacher, 1906, Clonistria guatemalensis Redtenbacher, 1908, Ramulus humberti (Saussure, 1861) and Anophelepis poeyi Saussure, 1868. One genus and four species are described as new. Parapodacanthus Brock gen. n., with the type-species P. hasenpuschorum Brock sp. n., is described from Queensland, Australia. Three Philippine species are provisionally placed in the genus Lonchodes Gray, 1835: L. puting-mantsa Zompro sp. n., L. magayon Zompro sp. n. and L. dalawangsungay Zompro, sp. n.; this complex urgently needs a generic revision. The eggs of Alienobostra godmani (Redtenbacher, 1908) and Lonchodes palawanicus (Carl, 1913) are described and figured for the first time. Xylodus Saussure, 1859, formerly synonymized with Cladomorphus Gray, 1835, and Micrarchus Carl, 1913 formerly synonymized with Pachymorpha Gray, 1835, are re-established as valid genera. Bacteria divergens Redtenbacher, 1908 is found to be a new synonym of Phanocloidea muricata (Burmeister, 1838), and Ocnophila adulterina Brunner v. Wattenwyl, 1907 of Lamponius guerini (Saussure, 1868). Prisomera palawanica Carl, 1915 is transferred to Stheneboea Stal, 1875, and Myronides trilineatus Carl, 1913 to Lopaphus Westwood, 1859.
