status

 

Trigonuropodidae Hirschmann, 1979  

Trigonuropodidae Hirschmann, 1979 b: 69   (nomen nudum).

Type genus Trigonuropoda Trägårdh, 1952: 77   , by inference from the family name.

Notes. This family name was first used by Hirschmann (1979 b) with seven included genera, but without any description or diagnosis. At that time the family had the same taxonomic content as the Ganggattung called Trigonuropoda   in Hirschmann (1979 b, page 61). Hirschmann (1979 c) placed Trigonuropoda   in the Subfamily Uropodinae and Tribe Dinychini, implying the synonymy of Trigonuropodidae   with Dinychidae   . Farrier & Hennessey (1993), Vázquez & Klompen (2001, 2007), Kontschán (2008 b, 2009 a, 2012 b), and Kontschán & Starý (2013) used the family name but did not provide a description or any other taxonomic information. Vázquez et al. (2007) incorrectly gave the authorship of the family name as Hirschmann & Wiśniewski (1979). Beaulieu et al. (2011) used the family name but attributed the name to Hirschmann (1979 b) and did not provide a description or any other taxonomic information. Apart from Trigonuropodidae   , Trigonuropoda   has also been placed in the Uropodidae   (e.g. Halliday, 1996; Hiramatsu, 2001) and in Uropodinae: Dinychini (e.g. Hiramatsu, 1981 c; Hirschmann, 1990). Hirschmann (1993), Wiśniewski & Hirschmann (1993), Wiśniewski (1993 a, 1993 b, 1993 c) and Kontschán (2013 and elsewhere) used the genus name, but did not indicate its family placement. I have been unable to locate any description or diagnosis that would make the family name available, so it remains a nomen nudum.
