 Comments
       
  Comment: Cairns et al. (2002) Occurrence values: A-P  
    According to Kramp (1961), the originally published name was "Staurophora mertensii," although it is also given by Kramp as "mertensi." A number of significant publications have since used "mertensii," so it should stand as the correct original spelling under the ICZN
