 Comments
       
  Comment: 'The noun Amphiesma is undoubtedly neutral according to Greek-English dictionaries that we consulted, and Toriba (1994) was correct in underlining this point overlooked by most authors. In the present list, we therefore treat specific epithets in agreement with the neutral gender of the name Amphiesma. The epithet monticola (a mountain dweller) must be considered a masculine name in apposition, not an adjective.' (David, Vogel, and Pauwels, 1998)
