Re: Nomenclatural quibble - Latin
Yes, but it doesn't matter in the big scheme of things, because
improper latinization is not grounds for an emendation at the species
From the ICZN website:
"32.5.1. If there is in the original publication itself, without
recourse to any external source of information, clear evidence of an
inadvertent error, such as a lapsus calami or a copyist's or printer's
error, it must be corrected. Incorrect transliteration or
latinization, or use of an inappropriate connecting vowel, are not to
be considered inadvertent errors.
Examples. If an author in proposing a new species-group name were to
state that he or she was naming the species after Linnaeus, yet the
name was published as ninnaei, it would be an incorrect original
spelling to be corrected to linnaei. Enygmophyllum is not an incorrect
original spelling (for example of Enigmatophyllum) solely on the
grounds that it was incorrectly transliterated or latinized."

(To be precise: it's because the family has at least two members, of which at
least one is not female.)
