Nomenclature Levinseniidae as "Levinséniens nov. fam." The subsequent ICZN decision (1979, opinion 1139) on Paraonidae to give the name precedence over Levinseniidae has no comment on the obvious informal nature of the original French "Levinséniens" as a family name. However, the 1999 ICZN Code, Article 11.7.2 allows unlatinized family names to be available if "generally accepted as valid ... " and to date from the first publication in vernacular form. This was also the rule from the 1961 Code onwards. However, Levinseniidae was never generally accepted as valid, so it did not threaten Paraonidae. [details]

Nomenclature Levinseniidae as "Levinséniens nov. fam." The subsequent ICZN decision (1979, opinion 1139) on Paraonidae to give the name precedence over Levinseniidae has no comment on the obvious informal nature of the original French "Levinséniens" as a family name. However, the 1999 ICZN Code, Article 11.7.2 allows unlatinized family names to be available if "generally accepted as valid ... " and to date from the first publication in vernacular form. This was also the rule from the 1961 Code onwards. However, Levinseniidae was never generally accepted as valid, so it did not threaten Paraonidae. [details]

Spelling Cerruti (1909), apparently the first to use (as a synonym) the formal name Levinsenidae, used only one i (-idae) instead of two (-iidae). The double i was used by the ICZN, and earlier by Strelzov (1973), which means they considered the stem of the the name was Levinseni, not Levinsen. [details]
