Could you use this command instead?

	fc-list : file family fullname | grep -i beteckna

It will show also the fonts' family names. These are used by fontspec  
to group a set of individual fonts to a complete family of regular,  
italic, bold, and bold italic fonts.

How do you select this shape in your source? A complete minimal  
example would be nice...
