Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Cladorostrata Shen & Tai, 1963 (Family Miraciidae)
Shen and Tai (1963: 419) established the genus Cladorostrata for two new species, C. brevipoda Shen & Tai, 1963 and C. longipoda Shen & Tai, 1963, but neither was fixed as the type species in the original publication and hence the name Cladorostrata Shen & Tai, 1963 is to be treated as a nomen nudum. The generic name remained unavailable until Tai and Song (1979: 185–186) (possibly inadvertently) fixed C. brevipoda Shen & Tai, 1963 as the type species by original designation in combination with providing a generic diagnosis (in Chinese), thereby satisfying the provisions of ICZN Arts 13.1.1 and 13.3. This original designation was also adopted by Shen (1984: 210). The generic name Cladorostrata should therefore be attributed to Tai and Song (1979) and the names of the original authors should be enclosed in parentheses in the changed combinations as Cladorostrata brevipoda (Shen & Tai, 1963) and Cladorostrata longipoda (Shen & Tai, 1963). [details]
