Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Dahlakia Por, 1986a (Family Canthocamptidae)
Por (1968: 45) described a new species of Cletodidae, Cletocamptus xenuus Por, 1968, from the Dahlak Archipelago but expressed reservations about its generic assignment. In a later paper (Por 1986a: 123), he proposed a new genus Dahlakia Por, 1986a in the subfamily Hemimesochrinae (Canthocamptidae) and designated C. xenuus as its type and only species. Dahlakia Por, 1986a is a junior homonym of Dahlakia Biggs, 1971 (type species by original designation: Dahlakia leilae Biggs, 1971) (Gastropoda: Cerithiidae). Houbrick (1978) considered Biggs’s (1971: 221) genus a junior subjective synonym of Bittium Leach in Gray, 1847 while some authors have used Dahlakia as a subgenus of Bittium (e.g. Bosch et al. 1995). In a later paper Houbrick (1992: 270) proposed that the type species of Dahlakia is in fact a probable synonym of Cerithium scabridum Philippi, 1848, and therefore excluded the genus from the Bittiinae (family Cerithiidae). It is proposed here to remove Dahlakia Por, 1986a from its homonymy by replacing it with the new replacement name Dahlakocamptus nom. nov. (gender: masculine), containing Dahlakocamptus xenuus (Por, 1968) comb. nov. as its type and sole species.
