 Geographic Information
  Geographic Division:    



  Comment: See Söderström et al. (2012:40). The 'basionym' was not validly published, but this new name was, based on the cited 1992 description. Thus, the 2010 attempt to publish a new combination actually created a completely new name, so Schuster's authorship is not included
