Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The genus name Slabberia Forbes, 1846 was widely used until Mayer (1910: 719) noted that the name is a junior homonym of Slabberia Oken, 1815. Oken's work was, however, rejected for nomenclatural purposes (ICZN, 1956: opinion 417). This makes Slabberia Forbes, 1846 a valid name again. Slabberia and Dipurena McCrady, 1859 have unanimously been regarded as synonyms by most taxonomists of the later 20th century. Because Forbes' name is older, Slabberia must be used.
At first it might appear somewhat inconvenient that the now well known name Dipurena should be replaced by the less nown Slabberia. However, the work of Nawrocki et al.(2010) has shown, that the traditional scope of Dipurena, as defined by their subdivision of the gonad, cannot be upheld and the genus is clearly polyphyletic.
The former Dipurena species not belonging to the Slabberia clade are referred to the genus Stauridiosarsia.
