Journal/Book Name, Vol. No.:
Unresolved priority issue is shown by Platnick (2012, online World Spider Catalog v12.5). Eresus niger frontalis Latreille, 1819 is treated as conspecific with Eresus kollari Rossi, 1846 (as a subspecies therein), yet is the senior name. If this placement is accepted, then according to priority the species should be known as Eresus frontalis Latreille, 1819. However, Platnick (pers. comm. 10/2011) avoids introducing nomenclatural changes regarding subspecies in the catalog unless/until those issues are addressed in the modern literature
ITIS taxonomy is based on the latest scientific consensus available,
and is provided as a general reference source for interested parties.
However, it is not a legal authority for statutory or regulatory purposes.
While every effort has been made to provide the most reliable and up-to-date
information available, ultimate legal requirements with respect to species
are contained in provisions of treaties to which the United States is a
party, wildlife statutes, regulations, and any applicable notices that have
been published in the Federal Register. For further information on U.S.
legal requirements with respect to protected taxa, please contact the
