 Comments
       
  Comment: The specific epithet has caused considerable confusion. The name as it originally appeared [demidoff] is accompanied by a description and thus fulfills the criteria of availability. Subsequent workers cast doubt on the validity of the name, preferring to accept G. demidovii Fischer, 1808, or emending the spelling of the 1806 name. Schwartz (1931b) maintained that the name was not latinized, however, according to Article 31 of the ICZN, it must be treated as a noun in apposition to the generic name, and is therefore acceptable (Jenkins, 1987:98). Rylands (pers. comm. 26 June 2014) considered the matter and agreed to follow Jenkins (1987) and Groves (2001) in using the epithet as originally published, and treating the emendation as unjustified
