Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature A. eximia or A. eximea?

Two articles in the Code are of importance here:
24.2.3. Selection of correct original spellings. If a name is spelled in more than one way in the original work, the first author to have cited them together and to have selected one spelling as correct is the First Revisor. The selected spelling (if not incorrect under Articles 32.4 or 32.5) is thereby fixed as the correct original spelling; any other spelling is incorrect (and therefore unavailable [Art. 32.4]).
24.2.4. Original authors may be deemed to be First Revisers of spellings. When the author, or one of joint authors, of two different original spellings of the same name subsequently uses one of them as valid is a work (including the author’s or publisher’s corrigenda), and neither had previously been selected as the correct spelling by a First Reviser, the author is deemed to be the First Reviser, whether or not the author cites both spellings together (that used as valid becomes the correct original spelling).

Both names were used by Smith (1884). Smith himself used A. eximia in his publication of 1886 (pp. 189, 190, 192). In between no other author has used both names in an article and selected the correct spelling, thus here article 24.2.4 holds and Smith himself becomes the First Reviser. In 1887 (pp. 610, 611, 613, 667, pl. 14 fig. 1) Smith uses A. eximea again, but this should, according to the Code, be regarded an incorrect spelling.
