Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature The earlier name Brachidontes ustulatus (Lamarck, 1819) has been put forward by Huber (2010: 550) as the valid name to be used for this species. However the name Brachidontes pharaonis is in usage and the provisions of ICZN art. 23.9 may apply. Awaiting either confirmation that the requirements of this article are met, and formal declaration of respectively “nomen oblitum” and “nomen protectum”, or bringing the case to the ICZN, the name in prevailing usage is here maintained as “accepted”. Lamy (1936) knew that ustulatus is the same species and nevertheless refrained from using the name as valid. Nevertheless, there is a consistent usage of this name for a West Australian species, which is not yet proved to be the same as B. variabilis. Awaiting taxonomic clarification, both names are kept here as "accepted". [details]
