  Comment: Emended to torringtoniae because the work shows the taxon was named after Lady Torrington, so the suffix is corrected to -iae following ICZN Article 32.5.1 - an incorrect original spelling must be corrected - and Article 31.1 - treatment of a personal name must follow rules of Latin grammar
