If I recall correctly, the reason the species name is H. foxii rather than H.
foxi, is that Huxley Latinized the name Fox to Foxius, and then declined to
foxii, rather than just declining Fox to foxi. I am not sure if this was
required at the time, but it seems to have been a fairly common practice.
