Hawkesworth, J. 1773. An account of the voyages undertaken by the order of his present majesty for making discoveries in the Southern Hemisphere, and successively performed by Commodore Byron, Captain Carteret, Captain Wallis, and Captain Cook, in the Dolphin, the Swallow, and the Endeavour: drawn up from the journals which were kept by the several commanders, and from the papers of Joseph Banks, Esq.

Taxonomy Dagysa was erected in 1768 by Banks & Solander in diaries that were only formally published in Hawkesworth's account in 1773. Hawkesworth summarized notes from various participants to Cook's voyages and mentioned Dagysa on p. 2 and 3 in his Volume II without naming species. Description of Dagysa was vague and insufficient for genus recognition. Opinions of various subsequent authors on its identity varied from Salpa, Cyclosalpa to Thetys. Gmelin (1791) in the 13th edition of Linnaeus' Systema Naturae mentioned Dagysa with the species name D. notata, of which it is unclear where it came from (Gmelin refers to Hawkesworth, but no such name is found in this work). Joseph Hooker (1896) published the verbatim journal of Banks and mentioned Dagysa on p. 2, along with several species names, D. saccata, D. lobata (p. 3), D. rostrata and D. strumosa (p. 3), D. vitrea (p. 64). [details]

Taxonomy Dagysa was erected in 1768 by Banks & Solander in diaries that were only formally published in Hawkesworth's account in 1773. Hawkesworth summarized notes from various participants to Cook's voyages and mentioned Dagysa on p. 2 and 3 in his Volume II without naming species. Description of Dagysa was vague and insufficient for genus recognition. Opinions of various subsequent authors on its identity varied from Salpa, Cyclosalpa to Thetys. Gmelin (1791) in the 13th edition of Linnaeus' Systema Naturae mentioned Dagysa with the species name D. notata, of which it is unclear where it came from (Gmelin refers to Hawkesworth, but no such name is found in this work).
