Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology according to Mackie & Chambers (1990:52) "Several authors have treated Sigalion as neuter, but Sigalion is a Greek name for the Egyptian god of silence, more commonly known as Harpocrates, and is of masculine gender (Lewis & Short 1879). This is clearly indicated by the words (" … aut tua Sigalion Aegyptius oscula signet . . .") of the poet Ausonius …" [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorGrammatical gender masculine (fide Mackie & Chambers, 1990) [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType species Type species S. Mathildae Audouin and Milne Edwards is mentioned only as a footnote in Cuvier (1830), without description, referring to "Aud. et Edw., Littor. de la France" which work did not appear until 1834 [details]
