  Comment: The intended 'basionym' for W.H. Lewis' Neanotis foetida (1966:38) was J.D. Hooker's Anotis foetida (1880), which was illegitimate (superfluous) when published due to Hooker's inclusion of a legitimate name (H. subtilis Miq., from 1852) as a heterotypic synonym (see comments under Anotis foetida & Hedyotis foetida). Since Lewis did not explicitly exclude the type of H. subtilis Miq., per ICBN Art. 58 Note 1, Neanotis foetida is also an illegitimate name
