Planodiscus Sellnick, 1926 

Planodiscus Sellnick, 1926: 44  .

Type species Planodiscus sqamatim Sellnick, 1926: 44  , by original designation.

Notes. The name of the type species has been incorrectly spelled as squamatim by some authors. Sellnick (1926) used the spelling sqamatim  six times, so there is no doubt that this is the correct original spelling. Elzinga & Rettenmeyer (1966) deliberately changed sqamatim  to squamatim, but this spelling has achieved only extremely limited use, and cannot be considered to have achieved prevailing usage. It is therefore an unjustified emendation (International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, Article 33.2).
