Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority Attributed to Lesson by L. Agassiz (1841: p. 110), who never appears to have actually published the name, and thus Agassiz's use is the first to make the name validly available. Agassiz is, therefore, the correct author according to the Code. [details]
