Errr, since these haven't been published anywhere,
"Eurycephale" Hanson, 2001 [pers. comm.]
might be more appropriate.
An emendation citation would only be necessary if I had actually published
a correction of this name somewhere. And, actually, if you had published
it as _Eurycephalia_ somewhere, neither the ICZN nor PhyloCode would
support my emending it to _Eurycephale_.
I don't even know if the name is warranted ... I'll leave that to others
more knowledgeable for discussion.
