Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSpelling Rioja (1941: 167) stated the name for H. ochotereana was "dedicar esta especie al Maestro D. Isaac Ochoterena", but he used the spelling 'ochotereana' for the species-group name. The use of H. ochotereana has been regarded as an accidental incorrect original spelling by Bastida-Zavala & ten Hove (2003), who cited Art 32.5 as justification for using 'ochoterena', although that would be an unchanged noun in apposition, rather than a genitive. Instead, we cannot reject the likelihood that Rioja had intentionally used the altered '-ana' ending (after all he used it five times) in trying to create an adjectival form of Ochotorena. Perhaps his adaption was intended to be a form of the suffix '-ianus' -iana' frequently used for adjectival latinisation of nouns based on personal and geographic names, and perhaps also to avoid the name looking like an authorship (ICZN recommendation 31A). As it was the author who was responsible for an incorrect latinisation (Art. 32.5.1) his original spelling is not corrected (also see Welter-Shultes, 2013:77, also preferable considering ICZN 31a). [details]
