Abstract

Voucher specimens are the physical representatives of a species, being an elementary tool for specimen based research. In this work, we revisit a recent record of Sibynomorphus mikanii for Santa Catarina, providing arguments for its invalidation, while reinforcing the need for a cautious review of new records based on incomplete or doubtful data.
