Milne Edwards, 1867: 279 (Marquesas; new synonymy, cf. Remark). - Remark: Ruppellia granulosa has been very rarely cited after its description. It is mentioned for the genus Lydia in Sakai (1976: 477). It has been briefly described from a single specimen: "Cette espèce se distingue de Ruppellia annulipes par la profondeur des sillons qui limitent les lobules des régions. Ces lobules sont rugueux et granuleux. Les pattes antérieures sont également couvertes de grosses granulations peu élevées. Les autres caractères sont les mêmes que chez la Ruppellia annulipes". We have re-examined the type specimen (MNHN B9344, 1 male 17x25) and, after its comparison with specimens of L. annulipes collected in the Marquesas and the Tuamotu (cf. in Poupin, 1994a: 47), we consider that it is a junior synonym of this species. - Unpublished sp., coll. & det.
