Martens explicitly attributed the names <i>Pseudopotamis</i> and <i>Pseudopotamis finschi</i> to Brot, and gave Brot's descriptions in quotes; under Art. 50.1.1, Brot is thus the author of the names. Contrary to published statements, <i>P. finschi</i> is not the type species by original designation; Martens included a second species, <i>P. semoni</i> Martens, 1894, and did not designate a type.
