Pogonembia Ross 2003


Pogonembia Ross 2003  , spelling of type species.

Two spellings of the type species of Pogonembia Ross 2003  b were presented in the original descriptions of the genus and species ( Ross 2003 b), P. motaguae  (in the description of the species) and P. motaquae  (in the type species designation of the genus). It seems clear that the intended spelling was P. motaguae  since it was named for the Rio Motagua Valley, Guatemala. For this reason, P. motaguae  is the correct original spelling and P. motaquae  is an incorrect original spelling according to Articles 19.3 and 24.2. 3.
