Nomenclatural notes
As the name "Lesleigh" ends in a consonant, the generic name might be "Lesleighia" in accordance with Rec 60B.1(b) of the Vienna Code; however, the name is pronounced "Les-lee", i.e. the terminal "gh" is silent, so the authors used the orthography "Lesleigha", pronounced "Les-lee-a". - (27 Jan 2012) - M.D. Guiry
