Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority Lamarck (1801) credits the authorship to Cuvier, but Stephen & Edmonds state they could not find evidence of this. Sherborn lists an 1801 mention of Thalassema by Cuvier in the first volume of the "Lecons .." but states the first formal mention is in Lamarck. The possible Cuvier or other authorship perhaps needs further investigation, but it seems likely "Thalassema" was a pre-Lamarck name (in Pallas at least) [details]
