Trichocylliba Berlese, 1904 

Cillibano (Thrichocylliba) Berlese, 1904 c: 329  .

Type species Discopoma comata Leonardi  in Berlese, 1895: 317, designated by Vitzthum, 1942: 787.

Notes. Berlese (1904 c) spelled the name of this genus as Thrichocylliba  four times on pages 329–331. In the Index to the same paper he spelled it as Trichocylliba  or " Trich." seven times (pages 455–464). Almost all authors since then have used the spelling Trichocylliba  , including Berlese himself ( Berlese, 1917). Elzinga (1982) described this action by Berlese (1917) as an emendation. Farrier & Hennessey (1993) argued that Trichocylliba  is an incorrect subsequent spelling, and selected Thrichocylliba  as the correct spelling of the genus name. That was the appropriate action as First Reviser, under Article 24 (b) of the Third Edition of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, which was in force at the time. However, Article 24.2. 3 of the current Code, which did not exist in 1993, makes Berlese (1917) First Reviser, and makes Trichocylliba  the correct spelling of the name. No other author before or after Farrier & Hennessey (1993) has used the spelling Thrichocylliba  , so I here use the spelling Trichocylliba  in the interests of stability. According to Elzinga (1982), Berlese (1904 c) designated D. comata  as the type species of Trichocylliba  , but that appears to be an error.
