Nomenclature Scarlato & Starobogatov (1983) established Spinolyonsiella and Spinolyonsiellidae based on the description by Allen & Turner (1974) of the anatomy of a specimen identified by them as Lyonsia formosa Jeffreys, 1882, with reduced or absent outer demibranch. Poutiers (in Poutiers & Bernard, 1995: 169) remarked that Lyonsia formosa is also the type species of Allogramma Dall, 1903, but suggested that, under the name Lyonsia formosa, Dall (1903) and Allen & Turner (1974) might have treated different taxonomic species, and concluded: “the identity of L. formosa (sensu Allen & Turner) is problematical”. However, Salas (1996) considered the gill character state described by Allen & Turner to be a juvenile feature (their specimen measured 8 mm), whereas adult Allogramma formosa have fully developed gills, and she retained Allogramma in the family Lyonsiidae. To avoid any ambiguity on the nomenclature of Spinolyonsiella (and Spinolyonsiellidae), Bouchet & Rocroi (2010: 82) under Art. 70.3 of the Code fixed the nominal species Lyonsia formosa Jeffreys, 1882, as the type species of Spinolyonsiella. [details]
