Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment Some authors, notably Johansson (1926, 1927), and the Hartman catalogue, and even recent authors, mistakenly treated Claparède's later use of Branchiomma as if it was a homonym accidentally introduced. This is incorrect as it is very clear he was using the genus name of Kölliker (he attributes the genus to Kölliker), although attempting to redefine it for his own species. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorGrammatical gender Genus Branchiomma is neuter, as deriving from the neuter Greek word for eye, omma, ommatos. Some authors from at least the 1880s recognized this, but others treated it as feminine. Of significant modern authors Knight-Jones (eg 1994) was probably first consistently to make gender corrections of existing epithets  [details]
