From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSpelling The misspelling Scolecolepis for Scolelepis Blainville, 1828 was a reform first suggested by Louis Agassiz (1846) in his "Nomenclatoris Zoologici Index Universalis .." and presumably adopted from there by Malmgren. Agassiz's suggestion does not qualify as an emendation, and Malmgren's change is an unjustified emendation. [details]
