Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType species Mesnil (1896: 117) created Marenzelleria for a previous misidentification of Nerine vulgaris Johnston by Wiren, commented on by Marenzeller, but did not create a species name. There are code rules which possibly resolve this situation. Currently the first species named in the genus, Marenzelleria wireni Augener, 1913 is recorded as the type species, as discussed by Maciolek (1984: 49). [details]
