Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Rioja (1917:40) created Oweniidae nom nov, stating that "Al ser el género Owenia el tipo de la familia, no hay razón para denominarla Ammocharidae puesto que el género Ammochares de Grube". However, Ammochares would have remained as the type of Ammocharidae, even although it is a synonym. Rioja was incorrect to replace the name for the family. Nevertheless Oweniidae is now accepted under prevailing usage. [details]
