Tibia serrata (G. Perry, 1811)

    The species Rostellaria serrata G. Perry, 1811 is almost certainly based on an abnormally-developed specimen of a presently-named Recent species.  The type locality ("East Indies") is inaccurate for a large number of Perry's other species and is not to be trusted.
