Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Brotskaya (1963: 793) proposed the new subfamily Cerviniopsinae in the Cerviniidae (now Aegisthidae), accommodating the genera Herdmania Thompson, 1893 [a senior objective synonym of Hemicervinia Lang, 1935 according to Por (1964a)]; Pontostratiotes Brady, 1883; Cerviniopsis Sars, 1903 (type); Pseudocervinia Brotskaya, 1963 [a junior subjective synonym of Cervinia Norman in Brady, 1878 according to Seifried (2003)]; and Herdmaniopsis Brotskaya, 1963. It should be noted that the stem of –opsis in Cerviniopsis is –opse-, thus the correct name should have been Cerviniopseinae and Cerviniopsinae is to be considered an incorrect original spelling. According to Seifried and Schminke (2003: 32) members of the Aegisthinae are probably nested within the Cerviniopseinae, rendering the latter subfamily paraphyletic. However, pending a phylogenetic analysis at species level they maintained the subfamilial subdivision of the Aegisthidae. Wells (2007: 17) likewise continued to recognize the Cerviniopseinae as a valid subfamily, accommodating Cerviniopsis, Pontostratiotes, Hemicervinia, Herdmaniopsis, Ameliotes Por, 1969, Stratiopontotes Por, 1969 and Tonpostratiotes Itô, 1982. A. Scott (1909: 232) proposed the family-group name Pontostratiotidae and stated that “... the type of this family is Pontostratiotes abyssicola Brady, 1883”. This species was fixed as the type of Pontostratiotes by monotypy (Brady 1883: 105). Since objectivity provided by typification is continuous through the hierarchy of names, extending in ascending order from the species group to the family group (ICZN Art. 61.1.2), the family-group name Pontostrationinae A. Scott, 1909 (type genus Pontostratiotes) takes priority over Cerviniopseinae Brotskaya, 1963.
