Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature According to Stephen & Edmonds (1972) Listriolobus Spengel, 1912 is a nomen nudum, although they retained Spengel as author of the genus. This would not be possible. Nishikawa (2004) examined the situation. He stated that, although Spengel (1912) failed to make a type designation and did not assign any nominal species to the new genus, this does not make the genus a nomen nudum since proposed before 1931. Spengel gave a definition of the genus, and this was sufficient at the time. However, this is a little doubtful as it seems Listriolobus was applied to a misidentification of Thalassema erythrogrammon. It seems Spengel was NOT transferring T. erythrogrammon to the new genus, thus there was no species for the genus. This is not possible. Fischer (1926) must be the author of the genus (in addition he stated he was). [details]
