Re: Abyssal's official pterosaur question thread

Taking another look at the 'Paranurognathus' article I discovered two spellings 
of the species epithet. The first is seen in a caption of a figure and is 'P. 
tischlingeri' but the next mention, which is the only mention in the text 
proper is 'P. tichlingeri'. What's the opinion on 'proper' spellings of nomina 
nuda. If I include 'P. tischlingeri' in a list should I also include 'P. 
tichlingeri' because as it has not been properly described it cannot have a 
correct spelling, or should I only include the first instance of the name? 
Which is it then? The first in the text, or can captions count?
