Editor's comment Caullery & Mesnil created the taxon as "Spirorbis (Paralaeospira) levinseni, written as Spirorbis levinseni on the description page, thus Paralaeospira is not the original genus (which was Spirorbis), and Paralaeospira levinseni is a recombination, although some may regard the combination just as a rank change. [details]
