Paralaophonte Lang, 1944 (Family Laophontidae)
The genus-group name Paralaophonte was first published by Lang (1944: 36) but without any valid type fixation. Lang (1944) divided the genus in four species-groups and designated a ‘type species’ for three of them: (1) brevirostris-group (no type designated), (2) perplexa-group (type: Laophonte perplexa T. Scott, 1899a), (3) gracilipes-group (type: Laophonte gracilipes Brady, 1910), and (4) karmensis-group (type: Laophonte karmensis Sars, 1911c). Vervoort (1964: 334) pointed out that Paralaophonte Lang, 1944 is an unavailable generic name which was subsequently validated by Lang (1948: 1386) by the indication of a type species (Cleta brevirostris Claus, 1863) and providing an accompanying generic diagnosis. The authorship and date of this genus should, therefore, be attributed as Paralaophonte Lang, 1948. For similar reasons Lee and Huys (1999b: 315) remarked that Paronychocamptus Lang, 1944 is also a nomen nudum which was subsequently made available by Lang (1948: 1380).
