Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment Renier's sternaspid name is unavailable, so discussion of usages of it are academic. However, as noted by Petersen (2000), both Hartman (1959:437) and Fauchald (1977:114) incorrectly used the name "Echinorhynchus scutatus Renier, 1807 as type species of Sternaspis (note the date). Renier [1804] included the name and a description. I have not verified how the name was used in Renier [1807] but Vejdovsky (1882:34) reported Renier named a subspecies there, and apparently used the 'Echinorhynchus' spelling. Vejdovsky attributed this as on p.531 of "Nova acta Acad. Curios. Nat. XI." Sherborn indicates that in the 1804 'Tavole' (Tavola?) Renier used both Echinorinchus scutatus (page xxi) and (note spelling) Echinorynchus clypeatus (page vi). Muir & Petersen (2013: 385) state that "The species was also mentioned in the unpublished work Renier [1807] with the Italian name Echinorinco Scudato and the Latin name Echinorynchus Clypeatus." The aim of Muir and Petersen was in regard to giving Renier a credit with 'in Ranzani' authorship for the later validly published name Thalassema scutatum Ranzani, 1817. However, this appears misguided. Renier was dead and could not have authored anything in Ranzani as required under the Code. [details]
