Grammatical gender Genus names ending in -on are to be treated as of neuter gender (ICZN art. 30.1.3), but if the name is of unexplained origin, then the gender of the assigned (type) species is to be taken as evidence for a masculine or feminine genus name (ICZN art. 30.1.4.2). Duchassaing & Michelotti did not discuss the gender of the name, nor explained its source. A search of the internet (Wikipedia) yielded the genus name as likely taken from a male person described in the classical Greek work of the Odyssea. Nevertheless, Duchassaing and Michelotti named three species, including the type species, of which the gender can be deduced as feminine (suffix -a), and four others of which no male or female gender can be deduced. It appears justified to conclude that the gender of Amphimedon is feminine. [details]
