Lang (1944: 11) introduced the generic name Alteuthellopsis for the single species, Eupelte oblivia A. Scott, 1909 but did not present a diagnosis or a bibliographic reference to such a description, hence the name remained unavailable. It was not until 1948 that Lang (p. 457) satisfied the provisions of ICZN Art. 13.1 by providing a generic diagnosis for Alteuthellopsis and fixing Eupelte oblivia as the type species (by monotypy). The generic name must therefore be attributed to Lang (1948). Humes (1981b: 227) added a second species, Alteuthellopsis corallina Humes, 1981. [details]
