  Comment: The name was originally given as Nesosydne montis-tantalus, named after Mount Tantalus (Oahu). After required correction to remove the hyphen (ICZN Art., the epithet appears to be a compound noun (or noun phrase) in apposition, which would not be declined for gender agreement (Art. 31.2.1), so the epithet should remain as montistantalus in all combinations
