From other sources
Spelling It is necessary to correct the original spelling of this species, A. nodosa, to A. nodosus. In accordance with the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, Article 34.2.
As Argonauta is masculine “from the final noun nauta (a sailor)” (I.C.Z.N. 1999, p. 34), the species-group name must be changed from the feminine nodosa (-a feminine) to the masculine nodosus (-us masculine). As Keen (1971) pointed out “the rules of grammar make no concession to the zoological fact that this sailor is the female of the species” (p. 894). [details]
