section 102. Sars (1909b: 323) established the genus Stenocaris to accommodate a new species S. gracilis Sars, 1909b and further remarked on the striking similarity with the species described by T. Scott (1892) as Cylindropsyllus minor. From the original diagnosis it is not clear whether Sars meant to include C. minor and, if so, which species he designated as the type. In a later paper redescribing S. minor (T. Scott, 1892), Sars (1911c: 434) reiterated the close relationship between both species by stating that Scott's species “... is evidently referable to the genus Stenocaris, ...., agreeing with the type species, S. gracilis, in all essential characters”. Since C. minor was doubtfully included it does not qualify as an originally included species (ICZN Art. 67.2.5) and, consequently, Sars’s (1911c) statement cannot be regarded as a formal subsequent designation. Sars’s (1909b) type fixation of S. gracilis was by monotypy, rendering Apostolov and Marinov's (1988: 278) fixation of S. minor as the type species invalid. The family-group name Stenocaridae proposed by Monard (1927: 171) is a junior subjective synonym of Cylindropsyllidae Sars, 1909b.
