Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Lichomolgus lobophorus was described by Humesd & Ho in 1968. Later in 1973 when Humes & Stock reviewed the lichomolgoid copepods, they created a new genus – Schedomolgu – to contain “Lichomolgus lobophorus” and another species of Lichomolgus. Then, 20 years later, Humes (1993: 845) moved it to a newly created genus – Ecphysarion. Therefore, the valid name for this species is Ecphysarion lobophorum (Humes & Ho, 1968) (pers. comm. J.S. Ho) [details]
