Nomenclatural notes
Illegitimate: according to CAS "New name for Gyroptychus contabulatus Schmidt. Mann indicates that this name is synonymous with Gyroptychus contabulatus A. Schmidt 1890 and Polymyxus schleinitzii Janisch (Gazelle exp. unpubl. ms. ca 1888). Janisch manuscript (ref. 000541) however was never published and Mann should have used the epithet contabulatus when transferring this species to genus Actinodiscus." - (19 Aug 2019) - M.D. Guiry
