 Comments
       
  Comment: Larsen & Wilson (2002) apparently corrected Paratanaidae to Paratanaididae, to make it "agree with the presumed Latin stem 'tanaid-'." However, Article 29.5 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (1999) indicates that in such cases the spelling in prevailing usage is to be maintained. Accordingly, Larsen (personal communication, September 2003) suggests retaining the spelling Paratanaidae
