Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Although the gender of Amorphinopsis cannot be concluded from Carter's use of the name, as the gender of the original species name excavans can be either male or female, it is generally assumed that genus names ending in -opsis are female (see Brown's Compostion of Scientific Words). Accordingly, we provide the species names where applicable with a female ending. [details]
