From editor or global species database
Editor's comment Ichthyobdella in WoRMS formerly had "Oka, 1910, 1931" as author. This was clearly nonsensical as the name is much older than 1910, but Oka did create Ichthyobdella species. In the ITIS database the author is de Blainville, 1827, but it is placed as a synonym of Myzobdella Leidy, 1851. This is not possible unless Ichthyobdella is a junior homonym. However, it has no homonyms. Nomenclator zoologicus gives the authorship as Blainville in "Dict. Sci. Nat., 47, 244" and this citation refers to the 'Sangsues' entry in the 'SAG-SAY' 47th volume of the Dictionary, where Ichthyobdella is mentioned on page 205, without a species name associated. [details]
