Note 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorRemark Bousfield & Chevrier, 1996 used the same type species, Monoculodes spinipes Mills, 1962b, for two genera: Americhelidium Bousfield & Chevrier, 1996: 122 and Pacifoculodes Bousfield & Chevrier, 1996: 102. Americhelidium has page preference, but if both species have the same type species then which genus does it actually define and how is the problem solved? If each is a valid genus then is it possible to select another type species for one of the genera? [details]
