  Comment: See Cutler (1994:107), where it is noted that although Phascoliidae is "the technically correct spelling," the original spelling, Phascolionidae, is instead retained. Despite his argument, the correction is required under the ICZN; to do otherwise would require action by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature
