Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy In creating Chloenopsis Fauchald, 1977 (and the content of the first version of this WoRMS record as created by him) appears to have treated Chloenea as used by McIntosh as a new genus name pre-occupied by Chloenea Kinberg, thus a homonynm needing a replacement name. This was not correct. However, Chloenopsis may be valid simply as a new genus for Chloenea sensu McIntosh and C. atlantic McIntosh, 1885, which is not a Chloeia (according to Fauchald, 1977) [details]
