Nomenclatural notes
According to Berger et al. (2003: 527), this species is frequently spelled as A. calyculus, although in the original description by Quoy & Gaimard the name is given as A. caliculus. Norris (2010: 104) notes that the spelling caliculus agrees well with the Latin calix, a small cup [or chalice], and he argues that it is not necessary to change to the Greek form calyculus, from calyx or kalyx. See http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/calix - (19 May 2006) -

Taxonomic notes
Berger et al. (2003) cite A. caraibica sensu Okamura (1912) as a synonym A. caliculus J.V. Lamouroux in Quoy & Gaimard (1824). - (19 May 2006) - Wendy Guiry
