Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorClassification according to Hanley (1989) belonging to subfamily Arctonoinae Hanley, 1989; but validity of the subfamily questioned by Barnich & Fiege (2001) [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology not stated. Ditlevsen has no text on the derivation of the name. He does use an accented 'e' in Bathynoe. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorGrammatical gender treated as masculine by Ditlevsen, followed by the usage in Horst, 1918, but subsequent workers have not continued this. Hanley (1989: 23) explicitly states the gender is feminine but does not give a derivation. Hartman's bibliography has an instance where she changed, presumably deliberately, Horst's (1918) title word Bathynoe 'nodulosus' to 'nodulosa'. Probably Hanley and others treat the name as feminine for consistency because Polynoe as a Greek name is feminine (one of the female Nereides) and Ditlevsen was assumed to be using Polynoe as his model, although he gives no hint of information on etymology of his genus or species. It seems advisable to accept this change and continue Bathynoe as feminine. The ICZN Code appears to have no advice for determining gender of -noe Greek names. [details]
