Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy This genus was proposed by Mielke (1985: 240) for two new species, Chilaophonte concepcionensis Mielke, 1985 and C. maiquillahuensis Mielke, 1985. Regrettably, the mandatory requirement of type fixation was not met by the author, which renders the genus-group name unavailable. It is here made available under its original name as Chilaophonte gen. nov. (ICZN Art. 16.1) with C. maiquillahuensis Mielke, 1985 as the newly fixed type species (ICZN Art. 13.3). The taxon can be differentiated from other genera in the family Laophontidae by explicit reference to Mielke’s (1985: 240) original generic diagnosis (ICZN Art. 13.1.2). Both included species should be cited as new combinations: Chilaophonte concepcionensis (Mielke, 1985) comb. nov. and C. maiquillahuensis (Mielke, 1985) comb. nov. [details]
