Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy  Robertgurneya Lang, 1944 (Family Miraciidae)
The genus Robertgurneya was first diagnosed by Lang (1944: 20) but without a rigidly construed fixation of a type species. The author divided the genus in two species-groups and designated a type for each: similis-group (type: Stenhelia simulans Norman & T. Scott, 1905) and spinulosus-group (type: Amphiascus spinulosus Sars, 1911a). Lang (1948: 697) suggested that both species groups may eventually be recognised as separate genera and under those circumstances he would reserve the name Robertgurneya for the similis-group and propose a new name Robertgurneyella for the spinulosa-group. Such conditional proposal cannot be considered a rigidly construed type designation under the Code (ICZN Art. 67.5.3) and neither can his habitual designation of the earliest described species (Stenhelia similis A. Scott, 1896) as the type (Lang 1948: 7). Under ICZN Arts 13.1 and 13.3, the first authors to make the genus-group name Robertgurneya available were Apostolov and Marinov (1988: 173) who cited “Robertgurneya similis A. Scott, 1896” [sic] as the type and provided a differential diagnosis of the genus (in Bulgarian). The correct author attribution for Robertgurneya must therefore be “Apostolov & Marinov, 1988” and the unavailable generic name Robertgurneya Lang, 1944 [nomen nudum] cannot enter into its synonymy. The genus includes the following species and subspecies: Stenhelia similis A. Scott, 1896 = Robertgurneya similis (A. Scott, 1896); Robertgurneya similis bulbamphiascoides Noodt, 1955b = R. similis bulbamphiascoides (Noodt, 1955b) comb. nov.; Stenhelia eythraea A. Scott, 1902 = R. erythraea (A. Scott, 1902) comb. nov.; Stenhelia simulans Norman & T. Scott, 1905 = R. simulans (Norman & T. Scott, 1905) comb. nov.; Amphiascus spinulosus Sars, 1911a = R. spinulosa (Sars, 1911a) comb. nov.; Amphiascus dictydiophorus Monard, 1924 = R. dictydiophora (Monard, 1924) comb. nov.; Amphiascus rostratus Gurney, 1927 = R. rostrata (Gurney, 1927) comb. nov.; Amphiascus dactylifer Wilson, 1932 = R. dactylifer (Wilson, 1932) comb. nov.; Amphiascus ilievecensis Monard, 1935a = R. ilievecensis (Monard, 1935a) comb. nov.; Amphiascus falklandiensis Lang, 1936c = R. falklandiensis (Lang, 1936c); Amphiascus ecaudatus Monard, 1936 = R. ecaudata (Monard, 1936); Robertgurneya remanei Klie, 1950 = R. remanei (Klie, 1950) comb. nov.; Robertgurneya oligochaeta Noodt, 1955b = R. oligochaeta (Noodt, 1955b) comb. nov.; Amphiascoides? arabicus Noodt, 1964 = R. arabica (Noodt, 1964) comb. nov.; Robertgurneya diversa Lang, 1965 = R. diversa (Lang, 1965) comb. nov.; Robertgurneya hopkinsi Lang, 1965 = R. hopkinsi (Lang, 1965) comb. nov.; Robertgurneya smithi Hamond, 1973b = R. smithi (Hamond, 1973b) comb. nov.; Robertgurneya soyeri Apostolov, 1974 = R. soyeri (Apostolov, 1974) comb. nov.; Robertgurneya brevipes Wells & Rao, 1987 = R. brevipes (Wells & Rao, 1987) comb. nov. [details]

Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The diagnosis of Robertgurneya Lang, 1944 (Lang, 1944:20) lacked a rigidly construed fixation of a type species - see Huys (2009: 16) for details. The genus-group name Robertgurneya was first made available by Apostolov & Marinov, 1988. [details]
