Note 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature When they described Callostracon tyrrhenicum, Smriglio & Mariottini combined the specific epithet with Callostracon as used by Nordsieck (1972). The latter, however, is a misspelling of Colostracon Hamlin, 1884, a genus of Mesozoic caenogastropods unrelated to the Recent Mediterranean species. Recognizing this situation, Repetto & Bianco established the name Callostracon for the Mediterranean species. Callostracon Repetto & Bianco, 2012, is not a junior homonym of "Callostracon" as used by Nordsieck, as the latter is an incorrect subsequent spelling, and thus not a nomenclaturally available name. [details]
