From editor or global species database
Spelling For unknown reasons Reibisch (1895) and Bergström (1914) used the spelling "Jospilus", although the Viguier (1886) original spelling was Iospilus. The Iospilus spelling prevails today.
A transient variant (with letter transposed) of "Iopsilus" appeared in the plate caption of Viguier's article, but Nomenclator Zoologicus lists it as if authored by Lacaze-Duthiers, 1886 (the journal editor), which is somewhat mystifying, and exaggerates its importance. [details]
