Grammatical gender The gender of Plakortis is uncertain. Schulze did not indicate its gender, nor is the gender obvious from the adjectival name of the type species. If we consult the Latin grammar dictionaries it is likely that the gender is feminine, as nouns of the third declension ending in '-is' usually are feminine. However, this rule has exceptions and we cannot exclude the possibiity that this compound genus name is masculine. [details]
