A. Scott (1909: 232) proposed the family-group name Pontostratiotidae and stated that “... the type of this family is Pontostratiotes abyssicola Brady, 1883”. This species was fixed as the type of Pontostratiotes by monotypy (Brady 1883: 105). Since objectivity provided by typification is continuous through the hierarchy of names, extending in ascending order from the species group to the family group (ICZN Art. 61.1.2), the family-group name Pontostrationinae A. Scott, 1909 (type genus Pontostratiotes) takes priority over Cerviniopseinae Brotskaya, 1963. [details]
