Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment Nogueira et al (2015:4) state: "Two other [Amaea now Amaeana] species, A. colei (McIntosh, 1926) and A. antipoda (Augener, 1926) are both treated as nomem nuda [sic]." This nomina nuda assignment is incorrect as both are available and valid names described in Code acceptable manner. The applicable latin term for the circumstances would be nomina dubia, indicating they were indeterminable on current information, although this status is not accepted here for A. antipoda [GBR ed.]. [details]
