Has the spelling been checked against the original publication? Unfortunately I don't have access to this early Ehrenberg but I note that Harring, Hudson & Gosse and others cite this species as pauper.

Both the 1830 publication and the 1832 follow-up where the species is given a description use the spelling Dinocharis paupera. Harring et al. seem to have made a mistake.

If you are ever interested in accessing these papers, by the way, their re-prints of them in Abhandlungen der Akademie der Wissenschaften are freely available as jpgs from BBAW, and some of the separate issues can be found as pdfs on

Dinocharis pauper is an incorrect subsequent spelling, apparently introduced by Hudson & Gosse (1886) (Genus Dinocharis is feminine).
