Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Rouch (1992: 149) proposed Psammonitocrella for two new species, P. boultoni Rouch, 1992 and P. longifurcata Rouch, 1992. Although its taxonomic position has been the subject of debate (Martínez Arbizu & Moura 1994; Lee & Huys 2002; Wells 2007) the genus has until now been left without the mandatory type fixation and the generic name Psammonitocrella Rouch, 1992 is thus unavailable. In accordance with the provisions of ICZN for new names published after 1999 (Arts 13.1.2, 13.3 and 16.1) it is here made available as Psammonitocrella gen. nov. by fixing Psammonitocrella boultoni Rouch, 1992 as the type species and by explicit reference to Rouch’s (1992: 149) original designation which serves to differentiate the taxon from other ameirid genera. Consequently, the generic name takes the authorship and date of the present paper and both species should be cited as new combinations: Psammonitocrella boultoni (Rouch, 1992) comb. nov. and P. longifurcata (Rouch, 1992) comb. nov. [details]
