mekongensis, Anchitestudinella: first reviser decision

Bērziņš (1973) used two alternative spellings, 'mekogensis' and 'mekongensis', for the single species of Anchitestudinella. Both spellings were used subsequently but it has never been clarified which of the two should be considered the correct spelling. As the first reviser, Segers (2007:6) fixed 'mekongensis' as the correct original spelling: "Considering the etymology of the name, which is derived from River Mekong, I suggest treating the latter, with -n-, as correct original spelling under Art.24.2.3 of the ICZN."

areolatus, Gomphogaster: year

I do have a copy of that work, but it doesn’t have a date on it. References to the work (not many) are inconsistent: Hudson & Gosse (1889), who redescribe and figure the species, cite the work as having been published in 1887, but Harring (1913) cites is with year 1888. Vorce himself, in 1890, mentions 1887 as the year of publication, which we regard as the date of publication…….

beauchampi, Diglena: Author's name

Referring to comment of 2012-12-06 12:03. My understanding is that the 'von' does form part of the legal surname. From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_name'

"Most surnames or family names (Nachnamen) consist of only one word. Titles of former aristocrats (like Graf for "Count") have become parts of the Nachname in Germany, giving longer names of several words, usually including the nobiliary particle von (meaning "of") or zu (meaning "to", sometimes "at"), often von und zu are also found together (meaning "of and to/at").[4][5] The legal rules for these names are the same as those for other Nachnamen, which gives rise to a number of cases where people legally bear such names but are not recognized by the associations of formerly noble families in Germany, which continue to apply the old rules of the German Empire in their publications. Most of these cases come about when a woman of noble descent marries a man with no title, and the two adopt the woman's name as their common Nachname, which was impossible under imperial law."

imhofi, Asplanchna: author name

The name of the French author should correctly be cited as "Guerne", not "De Guerne" because the "de" in this name was a title of nobility in this name (complete name was Baron Jules de Guerne).

Note that quoting the name in the form "J. de Guerne" in the citation of the editor of the work is correct: here the first name is added, and so the title of nobility "de" is also added.

This is the usual standard for French names (examples: Lamarck, not de Lamarck, Buffon, not de Buffon). In names like De Gaulle the "de" is not a title of nobility. Citing the name as "De Guerne" would be done if this was not a noble person.

2012-12-06 21:36
herricki, Asplanchna: author name

The name of the French author should correctly be cited as "Guerne", not "De Guerne" because the "de" in this name was a title of nobility in this name (complete name was Baron Jules de Guerne).

Note that quoting the name in the form "J. de Guerne" in the citation of the editor of the work is correct: here the first name is added, and so the title of nobility "de" is also added.

The author's name should be spelled d'Hondt (lower-case d and ' )

2012-12-06 19:19
americana, Ascomorpha agilis: author name

The name of the French author must be cited as "Beauchamp", not "de Beauchamp" or "De Beauchamp" because the "de" is a title of nobility in this name (complete name was Paul Marais de Beauchamp).

This is usual standard for French names (example: Lamarck, not de Lamarck), the only exception is when the "de" is phonetically combined with the surname like in "d'Orbigny" (in such names the d' is added to the surname in taxonomic names).

2012-12-06 12:18
aguessei, Lecane: author name

The author's name De Ridder is correctly displayed here, because this was a Belgian and not a French author (and the De is not a title of nobility in this name).

2012-12-06 12:11
truncata, Synchaeta: author name

The name of the German author in a taxnomic name must be cited as Hofsten, not Von Hofsten or von Hofsten. This is the usual standard for German names.

arctiscon, Dipodina: original spelling

Original spelling Diplodina Arctiscon, corrected original spelling Diplodina arctiscon.

Title of work is correctly displayed here, in the PDF file the space after the hyphen (Natur- ) was wanting.

2012-12-06 11:58
wulferti, Lecane: subspecies

Ergebnisse der Deutschen Limnologischen Venezuela-Expedition 1952 is recorded in ZDB as the name of a serial, so this seems to be fine.

In the PDF file I see this name recorded as Lecane closterocerca wulferti Hauer, 1956, with a comment "junior subjective synonym of nominal taxon". I did not understand why the subspecies status has later been removed. I have no access to the original source. If it was established as a subspecies, it should be recorded as such. If it was established as a species, then it should be listed as a species.

2012-12-06 00:14
vulgaris, Rotifer: monograph title

Delete "Octavo", this was not the name of the publisher but a standard term to specify the size of the book.

The name of the published was Schubart.

Schrank, F. von Paula 1801. Grundriß der allgemeinen Naturgeschichte und Zoologie zum Gebrauch der Vorlesungen in zwo Abtheilungen. - pp. 1-16, [1], 1-412, [1]. Erlangen. (Schubart).

http://www.mdz-nbn-resolving.de/urn/resolver.pl?urn=urn:nbn:de:bvb:12-bs...

In the PDF file I read a comment by which this was regarded as an "unnecessary substitute name for Vorticella rotatoria Müller, 1786 (= Brachionus rotatoria Pallas, 1766)".

Müller 1786 only used Brachionus rotatorius Pallas, 1766, and I see no provision in the Code that would allow to establish a substitute name for a subsequent use of another name. A subsequent use or misidentification is not an available name (Art. 49). Moreover, I did not see that Schrank 1801 mentioned any of the two given names.

2012-12-06 00:02
volvocicola, Diglena: author name

Check the name of the author. If given in Russian script in the original source, then spell it consistently according to the international standard transcription mode.

The y at the end of Zavadovsky is possibly not in agreement with the international transciption standards.

2012-12-05 23:34
urceolaris, Brachionus: name not available from Müller 1773

Not a new name established by Müller 1773: 131, only a
subsequent use of Vorticella urceolaris Linné, 1767.

Müller 1773: 131
gave a bibliographical reference to "Lin. Syst. 12." (= 12th edition of
Systema naturæ, today we would write "Linné 1767") and cited the
Linnean original genus Vorticella and the original Linnean diagnosis
"simplex pedunculata, ore dentato".

I do not understand why the Linnean name is not used for the taxon. Perhaps because Linné had a different species in mind. But I see in the PDF file that no types of Müller are preserved. Are Linnean types preserved? Otherwise a neotype could simply be selected for the Linnean name.

If this is no solution, then a Case should be brought to the Commission to clarify the situation, to suppress Vorticella urceolaris Linné, 1767 for both the principles of Priority and Homonymy, and all subsequent usages until 1773, and to validate Müller's 1773 name as available.

2012-12-05 23:29
bennini, Brachionus urceus: journal name

Schriften für Süßwasser und Meereskunde: in the GVK library catalogue recorded as "Schriften für Süsswasser- und Meereskunde", adding the  hyphen is in any case necessary.

Please check if the original source spelled ß or ss, and take the original spelling.

2012-12-05 23:09
amphichlaena, Habrotrocha: journal volume number

The Belgian journal name was correctly cited, but this journal has volume numbers (serial run was 1.1934 - 67.1999(2000)).

Add the volume number, here and at some 50 other occasions in the List.

2012-12-05 23:06
tridentata, Habrotrocha: journal volume number

The Belgian journal name was correctly cited, but this journal has volume numbers (serial run was 1.1934 - 67.1999(2000)).

Add the volume number, here and at some 50 other occasions in the List.

2012-12-05 23:06
squamula, Brachionus: monograph title

In the monograph title it was originally spelled "quæ detexit", not quae.

Havniæ was spelled with æ and not with ae in the original source.

2012-12-05 22:59
socialis, Hydra: author name, monograph title

Name of the author in the original work was spelled Linnæus (not with ae, but with æ). Linnæus did not spell himself Linnaeus, this is known from preserved handwritten documents.

In the title of the monograph the word naturæ was spelled with æ and not with ae (at both occasions).

Holmiæ was also spelled with æ and not with ae in the original source.

2012-12-05 22:56
similis, Coelopus: diacritic marks

This seems to be the file with the correct Polish diacritics. In the PDF file and in the second file in this list the Polish is not correct.

2012-12-05 22:49
rachis, Dissotrocha aculeata: journal name

AV-centralen i lund. It seems that this is not a journal, it is nowhere recorded as such in library catalogues, see

http://kvk.ubka.uni-karlsruhe.de

Cite the title of the serial in a form that scientists can find the published name in the future.

2012-12-05 22:43
quennerstedti, Monostyla: journal name

Cite the journal name consistently. Lunds Universitets Års-skrift is a proposal, this was also used in other names.

(The letter Å (å in lower-case) is perhaps not correctly decoded here, wherever this file is copied to, this is the A with a small ball above.)

If you give the subtitle Acta Universitatis Lundensis, then do this at all occasions where this journal is cited.

2012-12-05 22:40
peipsiense, Ploesoma: journal title

Check the Estonian journal title, I did not find it, it was not correctly cited. Toimetiset should be spelled Toimetised, Nsv could mean NSV.

2012-12-05 22:35
parva, Diurella: journal title

ZDB journal entry seems to be Bollettino di pesca, di piscicoltura e di idrobiologia / Supplemento memorie scientifiche

2012-12-05 22:33
parva, Diurella: character encoding

The Romanian diacritics were correctly displayed in the PDF file, here they are distorted. Should be taken care of the character encoding used.

2012-12-05 22:03
ovalis, Monostyla: journal title

Check journal title for correct Polish with all diacritic marks. I think that Lwow should be spelled Lwów.

2012-12-05 22:00
obtusa, Lepadella: reference title

Cite the Chinese original title, in pinyin transription. Eventually add the Chinese characters, if you can do that.

Nobody in China will find the title if exclusively an English translation is given. Library employees in China do not understand English.

2012-12-05 21:57
multiceps, Brachionus: journal name

Journal name is Der Naturfoscher, the "Der" is important

(Le Naturaliste Canadien and The Victorian Scientist given at other occasions are correct).

2012-12-05 21:52
mica, Lepadella: author name

journal name is correct and entirely consistent with ZDB entry, but please check the last name of the author:

Zivkovic could have been written with accent aigu (acute accent) above the c (ć). If the name was spelled in Serbian script, then take care to use the correct transcription for this last letter. The Serbian letter which looks like ħ (h with a hyphen in the middle) is transcribed as ć, not as c.

2012-12-05 16:57
chavesi, Brachionus: journal series and volume

Mémoires de la Société des Sciences, de l'Agriculture et des Arts de Lille. This seems to be the correct title.

If 1895, this should be the 5th series, but probably not volume 6, perhaps volume 1 (from 1895) or 2 (volume 8 was from 1925).

2012-12-05 16:55
ceratophylli, Limnias: monograph title

Correct and complete monograph title:

Schrank, F. von Paula 1803.
Favna Boica. Durchgedachte Geschichte der in Baiern einheimischen und
zahmen Thiere. Dritten und lezten Bandes zweyte Abtheilung. - pp. [1],
1-372, III-XIX [= 3-19]. Landshut. (Krüll).

It is important to add "Dritten und lezten Bandes zweyte Abtheilung".

Original spelling Limnias Ceratophylli.

2012-12-05 16:50
carinatus, Rattulus: monograph title

Title of monograph insufficient (I took it from the PDF file). Must be indicated Tome second.

In the PDF file was indicated "substitute name" for Trichoda rattus Müller, 1776. Lamarck's name was established as a regular new name with description, with a synonym "Trichoda rattus", a bibliographical reference to figures by Müller 1776 and to figures in "Encyclop.". I do not see a mandatory provision in the Code that a name established in this form must be considered as a substitute name. Lamarck 1816 did not indicate an intention to replace the name for nomenclatural reasons, to qualify for a new replacement name.  

2012-12-05 16:43
calcaris, Pterodina: journal name

This jounal could have a second title in Hungarian, possibly A Pozsonyi Orvos-Természettudományi Egyesület közleményei. It is best to check the original source.

bicornis, Platyias: author name, journal title

author name Zivkovic could have been written with e accent aigu (acute accent) above the c (ć) (see below under Le. mica).

Remove subgenus Schistocerca (if this was meant as a subgenus)

2012-12-05 15:43
amazonica, Lecane aspasia: primary homonymy

I did not understand the comment in the PDF file: "preoccupied as Lecane amazonica Koste & Roberton (non Murray, 1913)" - Murray 1913 established Monostyla amazonica. No primary homonymy. Perhaps secondary homonymy, which is not an issue for the LAN.

But the name is a primary homonym of Lecane closterocerca amazonica Koste & Robertson, 1978.

2012-12-05 15:20

aequalis, Notommata: aequalis, Notommata Ehrenberg 1830

aequalis, Notommata Ehrenberg 1830 - was not made available by Ehrenberg 1830: 66 (nomen nudum, menioned without description or reference). If this species was figured on a plate of the same work, the plate should be added, p. 66 is not sufficient.

alba, Megalotrocha Ehrenberg 1831 - was given with the date 1831, I do not understand why, it was published on p. 65 in the same work as the previous species. Seems to be exactly the same situation as in the previous species. Nomen nudum, if a figure was not given.

All names taken from this publication by Ehrenberg should be revised.
