The ending is treated as masculine in accordance with the provision in the Vienna Code (Art. 62C): (c) Compounds ending in -ceras, -dendron, -nema, -stigma, -stoma, and other neuter words, are neuter. An exception is made for names ending in -anthos (or -anthus), -chilos (-chilus or -cheilos), and -phykos (-phycos or -phycus), which ought to be neuter, since that is the gender of the Greek words anthos, cheilos, and phykos, but are treated as masculine in accordance with botanical tradition. - (8 Dec 2009) - M.D. Guiry
