Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The name of the European varunid Brachynotus gemmellari (Rizza, 1869) is usually spelt as such (see Froglia & Manning, 1978; Manning & Holthuis, 1981), but Ng et al. (2008: 227) spells the name as “Brachynotus gemmellaroi”. Rizza (1869) described the species as “Cleistotoma gemmellari” (p. 372) but noted that it was named after Professore Gemmellaro (p. 374). Rizza (1869: 377) used the name “Cleistotoma gemmellari” only once later in his discussion. Since it is clear that Rizza intended to name the species after Gemmellaro, the ending of the name should be corrected to “gemmellaroi” (Article 32.5.1), and the species should be known as Brachynotus gemmellaroi.
