Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSpelling The spelling Placobranchidae is based on Placobranchus, an incorrect subsequent spelling of Plakobranchus, by Férussac (1824), in a translation of van Hasselt's work. Jensen (1997: 180-181) argued for the restoration of the spelling Plakobranchidae, and she has been followed by Wägele & Willan (2000: 91). Bouchet & Rocroi (2005: 133), argued that the spellings Placobranchus and Placobranchidae were in prevailing usage and were conserved under Art. 33.3.1. This view has been challenged by R. Burn (com. pers. to B. & R.) and the spelling Plakobranchidae is now preferred. [details]
