Taxonomy As pointed out only recently by Wells (2007: 93), Lang’s (1944, 1948) removal of the type of Echinocamptus to the genus Bryocamptus left the remaining Echinocamptus species assembled in an orphaned taxon which requires a new generic name. Wells (2007: 93) formally proposed the name “Pilocamptus n. gen.” and fixed Canthocamptus pilosus Douwe, 1910 as the type species. However, according to ICZN Art. 13.1 this name is unavailable since its proposal was not accompanied by a description or definition that states in words characters that are purported to differentiate the taxon, or a bibliographic reference to such a published statement. The generic name Pilocamptus gen. nov. is here re-instated as intentionally new, taking the authorship and date of the present paper. The taxon it denotes can be differentiated from other genera in the family Canthocamptidae by the diagnosis given by Lang (1948: 1113) for the genus Echinocamptus. The genus includes the following species: Canthocamptus pilosus Douwe, 1910 = Pilocamptus pilosus (Douwe, 1910) [type species by original designation]; C. schröderi Douwe, 1915 = P. schroederi (Douwe, 1915) comb. nov.; C. Georgevitchi Chappuis, 1924b = P. georgevitchi (Chappuis, 1924b) comb. nov.; C. kamerunensis kamerunensis Kiefer, 1928 = P. kamerunensis kamerunensis (Kiefer, 1928) comb. nov.; Echinocamptus (Echinocamptus) kamerunensis villosus Chappuis, 1932 = P. kamerunensis villosus (Chappuis, 1933a) comb. nov.; E. (E.) africanus Chappuis, 1933a = P. africanus (Chappuis, 1933a) comb. nov.; E. (E.) Alluaudi Chappuis, 1933a = P. alluaudi (Chappuis, 1933a) comb. nov.; E. (E.) trichotus Chappuis, 1933a = P. trichotus (Chappuis, 1933a) comb. nov.; Echinocamptus Jeanneli Chappuis, 1936 = P. jeanneli (Chappuis, 1936) comb. nov.; E. monticola Chappuis, 1936 = P. monticola (Chappuis, 1936) comb. nov.; E. verrucosus Chappuis, 1936 = P. verrucosus (Chappuis, 1936) comb. nov., E. (s. str.) vulgaris Chappuis, 1936 = P. vulgaris (Chappuis, 1936) comb. nov.; E. Pauliani Chappuis, 1956 = P. pauliani (Chappuis, 1956) comb. nov.; E. monodi Dussart, 1974 = P. monodi (Dussart, 1974) comb. nov.; and E. hypophyllus Defaye & Heymer, 1996 = P. hypophyllus (Defaye & Heymer, 1996) comb. nov.
