DistributionPhilippines (Samar)

Type locality: Samar Island, Eastern Samar Province, Municipality of Taft, Barangay San Rafael, Taft Forest (11.829° N, 125.273° E; WGS84).  
TypesHolotype: PNM 9723 (formerly KU 305566; field no. CDS 1834), adult male, collected on 16 June 2006 by CDS. 
EtymologyThe specific epithet is chosen in recognition of Juan Ponce (Agustin) Sumuroy, a Waray hero and popular Visayan leader of the ‘‘Sumuroy Rebellion’’ attempt of 1649. Although the Spanish suppressed the uprising and executed many of its leaders, by all accounts, Sumuroy and his coconspirators did much to spread the quest for indepen- dence among the peoples of the central Philippines during Spanish rule.
