  Comment: Decolopodae has been attributed to Cole (1905:409-410), but it is not used as a valid name there, but rather to say 'Decolopoda might well be the basis for a distinct family, the Decolopodidae, if it were not for difficulties in disposing Pentanymphon, which will be taken up again.' Still, ICZN Article 11.5.1 indicates that it is not to be excluded on that count alone, referring to Art. 15.1 indicates that it 'may be available.' If it is not available from Cole (1905) then it should be available by the time of D'Arcy (1909:531)
