Lang (1936b: 476; published 21st September) is usually considered as the authority who introduced the
generic name Paranannopus, however the new name had already been proposed in an earlier paper (Lang 10 · Zootaxa 2183 © 2009 Magnolia Press HUYS

1936a: 51; published 20th March) to accommodate Nannopus abyssi Sars, 1920c and Paranannopus sarsi Lang, 1936a. In neither of Lang's (1936a, b) papers was a type species fixed, rendering the generic name Paranannopus Lang, 1936a unavailable. The first author attempting at fixing a type was Lang (1948: 7, 1330) himself by citing Nannopus abyssi as the earliest described species originally included in the genus, however his habitual proclivities are insufficient to recognize his type fixation as valid (see above). Huys et al. (1996: 244) also attempted to reinstitute the genus Paranannopus by attributing authorship to “Huys & Gee, 1996” – however, the completion of this paper which included a revision of the genus has not been published yet. Although the name Paranannopus Huys & Gee in Huys et al., 1996 was accompanied by a diagnosis stating in words characters that are purported to differentiate the taxon (and hence meeting the provisions of ICZN Art. 13.1.1), it is to be considered a nomen nudum since no type was explicitly selected (Wells 2007: 85; ICZN Art. 13.3). The generic name (gender: masculine) is here made available, taking the authorship and date of the present paper, by fixing Nannopus abyssi as the type species by original designation and by making reference to Huys et al.’s (1996: 244) generic diagnosis as the standard for differentiating the taxon from its confamilial members. Being unavailable, both Paranannopus Lang, 1936a [nomen nudum] and Paranannopus Huys & Gee in Huys et al., 1996 [nomen nudum], cannot enter into the synonymy of Paranannopus gen. nov., which is here explicitly indicated as intentionally new (ICZN Art. 16.1). The genus currently includes 22 valid species which must be cited as new combinations as follows: Nannopus abyssi Sars, 1920c = Paranannopus abyssi (Sars, 1920c) comb. nov. [type]; Paranannopus sarsi Lang, 1936a = Paranannopus sarsi (Lang, 1936a) comb. nov.; P. echinipes Smirnov, 1946 = P. echinipes (Smirnov, 1946) comb. nov.; P. minutus Smirnov, 1946 = P. minutus (Smirnov, 1946) comb. nov.; P. bahusiense [sic] Por, 1964b = P. bahusiensis (Por, 1964b) comb. nov.; P. philistinus Por, 1964c = P. philistinus (Por, 1964c) comb. nov.; P. caheti Soyer, 1965 = P. caheti (Soyer, 1965) comb. nov.; P. triarticulatus Wells, 1965a = P. triarticulatus (Wells, 1965a) comb. nov.; P. atlanticus Coull, 1973a = P. atlanticus (Coull, 1973a) comb. nov.; P. wellsi Soyer, 1976 = P. wellsi (Soyer, 1976) comb. nov.; P. longithorax Becker, 1979 = P. longithorax (Becker, 1979) comb. nov.; P. reductus Becker, 1979 = P. reductus (Becker, 1979) comb. nov.; P. truncatus Becker, 1979 = P. truncatus (Becker, 1979) comb. nov.; P. plumosus Schriever, 1983 = P. plumosus (Schriever, 1983) comb. nov.; P. denticulatus Schriever, 1985 = P. denticulatus (Schriever, 1985) comb. nov.; P. hicksi Schriever, 1985 = P. hicksi (Schriever, 1985) comb. nov.; P. kunzi Schriever, 1985 = P. kunzi (Schriever, 1985) comb. nov.; P. singulosetosus Schriever, 1985 = P. singulosetosus (Schriever, 1985) comb. nov.; P. trisetosus Schriever, 1985 = P. trisetosus (Schriever, 1985) comb. nov.; P. uniarticulatus Schriever, 1985) = P. uniarticulatus (Schriever, 1985) comb. nov.; P. variabilis Schriever, 1985 = P. variabilis (Schriever, 1985) comb. nov.; P. arndwilleni Willen, 2005 = P. arndwilleni (Willen, 2005) comb. nov. The species described by Wells (1965a: 19) under the name Paranannopus langi Wells, 1965a [= Paranannopus langi (Wells, 1965a) comb. nov.] is considered species incertae sedis  [details]
