Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSpelling Was recorded in WoRMS as 'Bathylevensteinia'. This was incorrect, and Bathylevensteina is the original spelling (corrected September 2016). Pettibone (1994: 609) misspelled the genus as 'Bathylevensteinia' when she transferred it to Macellicephalinae. [details]
