Thysanus excentricus Duncan, 1863, p.439, pl.16, fig.3a-c; Unknown Duncan, 1863:439

Type Specimen: Holotype; NHMUK R46814; Verified; Dry Preserved

Type Locality: Jamaica (Neogene)

There are five specimens with the number R46814 at the Natural History Museum in London. I have considered the specimen illustrated by Duncan (1863, pl.16, fig.3a-c) to be the holotype, and the other four specimens to be paratypes.
