Taxonomy Harris (1994: 304) proposed the genus Tectacingulum to accommodate two new species T. nigrum Harris, 1994 and T. tumidum Harris, 1994. Huys et al. (1996) did not accept any of the new genera established by Harris (1994) and Harris and Robertson (1994) in the absence of a full phylogenetic analysis of the highly speciose genus Porcellidium Claus, 1860. Walker-Smith (2001) and Wells (2007) both reinstated Tectacingulum as a valid genus. Unfortunately, Harris (1994) did not fix a type species, and this oversight renders the genus-group name unavailable. Tectacingulum gen. nov. is here expressly made available as a new generic name (ICZN Art. 16.1) by fixing T. tumidum Harris, 1994 as the type species and by explicit reference to Harris’s (1994: 304) diagnosis which suffices to differentiate the taxon from other genera in the Porcellidiidae (ICZN Arts 13.1.2 and 13.3). The genus takes the authorship and date of the present paper and includes the following new combinations: Tectacingulum tumidum (Harris, 1994) comb. nov. and T. nigrum (Harris, 1994) comb. nov.
It should be noted that both Murramia Harris, 1994 – established for the new species M. bicincta Harris, 1994 and M. magna Harris, 1994 – and Acutiramus Harris & Robertson, 1994 – established for Porcellidium acuticaudatum Thompson & Scott, 1903, P. brevicaudatum Thompson & Scott, 1903, P. ovatum Haller, 1879 sensu Geddes (1968b) (incertae sedis: cf. Wells 2007: 102), Acutiramus quinquelineatus Harris & Robertson, 1994 and A. rufolineatus Harris & Robertson, 1994 – are also unavailable for the same reason. Since these genera are now regarded as junior subjective synonyms of Porcellidium (Walker-Smith 2001) they are not dealt with here any further. Moreover, in his study of the chelicerae of the pterygotid eurypterids, Ruedemann (1935) established the subgenus Acutiramus (upgraded to generic level by Størmer (1974)). According to Tollerton (1997) the correct citation of the type species is Pterygotus buffaloensis Pohlman, 1881, by original designation = Pterygotus cummingsi Grote & Pitt, 1875. The eurypterid generic name Acutiramus Ruedemann, 1935 would have clear priority over the copepod generic name Acutiramus if a future worker adopts the latter name and – intentionally or accidentally – makes it available under a different authorship and date.
