Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Nicholls (1935: 381) established the genus Hastigerella for a new species Hastigerella palpilabra Nicholls, 1935 (type species by monotypy) collected in Kames Bay, Millport (Scotland), and considered it most closely related to the genus Arenosetella Wilson, 1932. The principal diagnostic difference between the genera Arenosetella and Hastigerella is the presence of anal hooks or claws in the latter. McLachlan and Moore (1978: 198) relegated H. palpilabra to a junior synonym of Ectinosoma tenuissima Klie, 1929 (incorrect original spelling of tenuissimum) and – based on their assertion that Nicholls (1935) had overlooked the anal claws – transferred this species to Arenosetella. They retained Hastigerella as a valid generic name and designated Ectinosoma leptoderma Klie, 1929 as the new type species. This course of action is in violation with the Code since, once fixed, name-bearing types are stable and provide objective continuity in the application of names (ICZN Art. 61.1.3).
It is, however, not clear from McLachlan and Moore’s (1978) publication whether they had also re- examined Nicholls’s type specimens of H. palpilabra to substantiate their claim of the presence of anal claws in this species. Since Nicholls’s (1935) descriptions are excellent by contemporary standards it would be surprising if he indeed had overlooked such conspicuous stuctures. If on the other hand his observation proves to be correct, there would be no grounds for removing H. palpilabra from Hastigerella and thus no need to resolve a non-existent issue – simply a need to reverse an error. The only material of H. palpilabra from Kames Bay that has ever been deposited in the Natural History Museum in London (NHM reg. nos 1947.10.14.28–30) consists of a jar containing five vials with a considerable number of specimens and a label stating that the material was transferred to ethanol by C.G.M., suggesting Dr Colin Moore had examined it (Nicholls’s material was originally preserved in formalin). The vials each contained a label mentioning the name “longisetosus” but the jar also contained an additional label in A.G. Nicholls’s handwriting, stating “longisetosus = MS name for Hastigerella palpilabra”. There is no doubt that this material represents the type series (syntypes) designated by Nicholls and was subsequently re-examined by McLachlan and Moore (1978). Re-examination confirmed the latter authors’ observation; however, the anal claws are less well developed and curved than in e.g. Arenosetella germanica Kunz, 1937, and are also aligned to the margins of the anal opening which is probably the reason why Nicholls (1935) had overlooked them.
Adopting McLachlan and Moore’s (1978) synonymy of H. palpilabra renders Hastigerella a junior subjective synonym of Arenosetella and therefore an invalid name. The orphaned taxonomic grouping equivalent to Hastigerella sensu McLachlan and Moore (1978) needs a new generic name for which I propose Glabrotelson gen. nov. (Latin glaber = bald, alluding to the absence of anal hooks which differentiates the genus from Arenosetella; gender: neuter). Hastigerella mehuinensis Mielke, 1986 is here formally fixed as the type of the new genus-group name. The generic diagnosis of Glabrotelson gen. nov. coincides with that given
by Huys et al. (1996: 188) for the genus Hastigerella (according to ICZN Art. 13.1.2 such bibliographic reference is sufficient to satisfy the criteria of availability).
The genus Glabrotelson contains the following species and subspecies: Ectinosoma leptoderma Klie, 1929 = G. leptoderma (Klie, 1929) comb. nov.; Pararenosetella meridionalis Chappuis, 1954a = G. meridionale (Chappuis, 1954a) comb. nov.; Pararenosetella psammae Noodt, 1955a = G. psammae (Noodt, 1955a) comb. nov.; Hastigerella abbotti Lang, 1965 = G. abbotti (Lang, 1965) comb. nov.; Pararenosetella monniotae Guille & Soyer, 1966 = G. monniotae (Guille & Soyer, 1966) comb. nov.; Pararenosetella clavata Rao & Ganapati, 1969 = G. clavatum (Ra [details]
