Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Parathalassius is a junior homonym of Parathalassius Mik, 1891 for a Diptera, Ozdikemen 2008 proposed Dusartius as a new replacement name, however this is a lapsus calami as it is a mis-spell of Dussart, and Dussartius was already occupied by dussartius Kiefer, 1978 hence, Huys, 2009 proposed Dussartopages as a replacement name for Dusartius. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Özdikmen (2008: 266) noted that Parathalassius Dussart, 1986 (type species by monotypy: P. fagesi Dussart, 1986) (Calanoida: Centropagidae) is a junior homonym of Parathalassius Mik, 1891 (type species P. blasigii Mik, 1891) (Diptera: Empididae) and proposed the new replacement name “Dusartius”. Since this name was clearly intended as a patronym in honour of the late Prof. Bernard H. Dussart (“Etymology: from B.H. Dusart who is the current author of pre-existing genus Parathalassius”), Özdikmen’s (2008) spelling is to be considered a lapsus calami which has no separate availability and cannot be used as a substitute name (ICZN Art. 32.4). The correction of incorrect original spellings resulting from inadvertent errors is mandatory and hence Dusartius has to be emended to Dussartius in accordance with ICZN Art. 32.5.1, retaining the authorship and date of the original spelling. Unfortunately Dussartius Özdikmen, 2008 is a junior homonym of the monotypic Dussartius Kiefer, 1978 (type species: Eudiaptomus baeticus Dussart, 1967; see Kiefer (1978: 156)) (Calanoida: Diaptomidae) and hence requires a new replacement name for which I propose Dussartopages nom. nov. (gender: masculine). Dussartopages fagesi (Dussart, 1986) comb. nov. is the type and sole species of the genus.
