Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Por’s (1986a) review of the Cletodidae, including the proposal of four new families and the reassignment of some species to the Canthocamptidae, has not gained universal acceptance and needs further testing (Wells 2007). In the meantime, his family-group names cannot be ignored as they were accompanied by diagnoses and are to be used as valid names according to ICZN Art. 13.2 until future revisionary work proves otherwise. As part of his review, Por (1986a: 421) established the family Huntemanniidae for the genera Nannopus Brady, 1880a, Huntemannia Poppe, 1884 [type], Pontopolites T. Scott, 1894b, Metahuntemannia Smirnov, 1946, Beckeria Por, 1986b and possibly Pseudocletodes Scott & Scott, 1893b. Except for Lang (1948: 1248), it has escaped most authors’ attention that Brady (1880a: 100) had already established a new subfamily Nannopinae (incorrect original spelling Nannopinæ) within the Harpacticidae for Nannopus Brady, 1880a (type genus) and Platychelipus Brady, 1880a (now placed in the Laophontidae). According to the Principle of Coordination applied to family-group names (ICZN Art. 36.1) Brady (1880a) is deemed also to have simultaneously established the coordinate family name Nannopidae (here corrected to Nannopodidae since the second part of the generic name Nannopus is based on the Greek stem     , meaning foot) which takes the same authorship and date. Since the family-group name Huntemanniidae was used by Por (1986a) to include the generic name Nannopus, it must sink as a junior synonym of Nannopodinae Brady, 1880a. The Principle of Priority requires that the latter be reinstated as the valid name with change of rank to family (ICZN Art. 23.1). The family name Nannopodidae is equivalent to Por’s (1986a) Huntemanniidae (evidently only if Nannopus and Huntemannia are considered to be confamilial) with the exception that (1) Dahms and Pottek (1992) have relegated Beckeria to a junior subjective syonym of Metahuntemannia; (2) three genera have been added since: Rosacletodes Wells, 1985 [= Echinocletodes Pallares, 1982a nec Lang (1936b); cf. Huys et al. (1996: 75)], Laophontisochra George, 2002 and Acuticoxa (cf. Huys & Kihara 2009), and (3) both Metahuntemannia and Dahmsopottekina Özdikmen, 2009 [= Talpina Dahms & Pottek, 1992 nec Hagenow (1840); see above] were assigned to the subfamily Hemimesochrinae in the Canthocamptidae (Huys & Kihara 2009). [details]
