  Comment: LSID associated with the scientific name Thymiosycia Pearson, 1914 acquired on 15 October, 2015  
    On page 120 of Rowe (1969) the spelling of Subgenus Thymiosicya matches the original spelling when Rowe notes 'there is no case for ignoring the priority of both Cystipus Haacke, 1880 and Thymiosicya Pearson, 1914, of which Fossothuria and Brandtothuria both of Deichmann, 1958, are respectively junior synonyms.'; but then Rowe throughout the rest of the article spells the subgenus Thymiosycia without justifying the emendation
