Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHomonymy " ... junior homonym of Bollandia Reed, 1943, a genus of Carboniferous trilobites (Proetida: Phillipsiidae). The trilobite name is well entrenched in the literature (Hahn 1990; 26 references documented by Zoological Record on 5 January 2009) and was conserved by the ICZN in 1991 (International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature 1991). [details]
