Nomenclature Baker established Platevindex as a replacement name for Oncis PLate, 1893 which he treated as junior homonym of "Oncis Herrmannsen, 1847". However, the latter is a mere nomenlator entry ["Oncis - vid. Onchis"] that refers to Onchis Férussac. The latter is treated by Herrmannsen as a full entry. "Oncis" is not treated by Herrmannsen (1847) as the valid name of a taxon, and under Art. 11.5 it is not an available name. Oncis Plate, 1893, is an available and potentially valid name, and Platevindex is an unnecessary replacement name. [details]
