Transfer authority From Vernon Harris: " geddes in 1968 published a description of an animal he called Porcelliduium ovatum, but P. ovatum is a synonym for Claus' 1860 P. tenuicauda, (now renamed Porcelloides tenuicauda). However, Geddes' animal does not have any of the autapomorphies of Porcelloides. Unforetunately, the male antennule is not described, but the P5 and caudal rams clearly show the the Geddes P. ovatum belongs t the genus Acutiramus, to which it has now been transferred.  [details]
