Epithet formed from the genitive case of a firest-declension Latin noun (dama, -ae, a deer) and the suffix (-cornis, e), a Latin adjectival suffix (adj. B, horned) to form a compound adjective, which under the current ICN rules (Art. 60) is to be corrected to "damicornis"). - (8 Jun 2021) - M.D. Guiry
