  Comment: Noonan et al. (2017:97) note that Zimmermann's 1780 (p.316) use of 'Lutra (brasiliensis)' is the first legitimate use after 1758, so authorship should reflect this. Gmelin's (1788:93) use of [Mustela lutris] brasiliensis becomes a subsequent combination of Zimmerman's, or alternatively a junior secondary homonym
