Gecko stenodactylus Lichtenstein , 1823


Gecko stenodactylus Lichtenstein, 1823 

1823 Gecko stenodactylus Lichtenstein, Naturhistorischer Anhang  , pp. 111–150 in Eversmann, Reise von Orenburg nach Buchara: 145.

As discussed by Bauer and Günther (Bauer & Günther 1991), this nomen ( Lichtenstein 1823 a) is not available, because it was published without a description and none of the indications listed by the Code in Art. 12.2 can be found in the text: the reference to Hemprich is in fact to an unpublished work (Art. 12.2.1) and two species are included in the new genus Ascalabotes  (hence conditions of Art. 12.2. 6 are not met).

Proposed status: unavailable name (nomen nudum).
