Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy In his redescription of Ameira longipes Boeck, 1865, Sars (1907a: 216) stated “... this is the form originally recorded by Boeck as the type of the genus Ameira”. Although there is no such statement in Boeck’s (1865) paper, Sars’s claim qualifies as a valid type designation according to ICZN Art. 69.1.1 and takes precedence over Lang’s (1944: 24) more explicit type fixation. Contrary to previous authors (e.g. Lang 1948; Boxshall & Halsey 2004) who attributed the family-group name Ameiridae to Monard (1927), Wells (2007: 88) pointed out that the authorship and date must remain with Boeck (1865: 273) who established it under the name “Afdeling Ameirina”. [details]
