|Types||Neotype: MNHN 2007.1494; the type specimen was probably destroyed during the Second World War (H. Wermuth 16.4.1979 in litt., in Klaver & Böhme 1992).|
|Comment||Synonymy: C. serratus has been synonymized with T. wiedersheimi by Mertens 1940 and subsequent authors but revalidated by BAREJ et al. 2010.|
T. serratus can be distinguished from T. wiedersheimi by the temporal cristae which are distinct in T. wiedersheimi and indistinct in T. serratus, but this character varies within both clade (BAREJ eta l. 2010). However,these differences are not clearly shown by BAREJ et al. 2010 (Fig. 4).
