Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Note that McIntosh (1885:174 & 182) uses parenthesis to indicate the replaced name as Greeffia (Nauphanta). This strange apparent continued usage of the unavailable (preoccupied) Nauphanta as a subgenus should be ignored, as McIntosh on the next line of p.182 introduces his new species as Greeffia oahuensis. On the next page there is a usage of Alciopa (Halodora), again debatable as Halodora Greeff is an unnecessary replacement name, but this instance seems to be an intentional usage as a subgenus. [details]
