Note 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Greeff (1876:55) introduces Halodora for Alciopa reynaudii, but as type species of Alciopa it cannot be recombined to another genus. Greeff then puts several other species into Alciopa, attempting to change the concept. As Støp-Bowitz (1948:30) comments, this cannot be done. [details]
