From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Martens explicitly attributed the names Pseudopotamis and Pseudopotamis finschi to Brot, and gave Brot's descriptions in quotes; under Art. 50.1.1, Brot is thus the author of the names. Contrary to published statements, P. finschi is not the type species by original designation; Martens included a second species, P. semoni Martens, 1894, and did not designate a type. [details]
