Nomenclatural notes:

Athanasiadis (2016: 683, footnote 1) attempted a correction of the orthography of the family name as introduced by Rodriguez-Prieto, Freshwater & Hommersand and the tribe name introduced by De Toni (1903: 1253) citing Art.60.1. However, Art 18.1 is clear: "The name of a family is a plural adjective used as a noun; it is formed from the genitive singular of a name of an included genus... . For generic names with alternative genitives the one implicitly used by the original author must be maintained, except that the genitive of names ending in -opsis is always -opsidis."
