  Comment: Martin states that Munnopsididae Sars, 1869 is a spelling change from Munnopsidae  
    Marilyn Schotte (pers. comm.) states that Munnopsidae is the correct spelling  
    While some attribute Munnopsidae to Sars, it should be attributed to Lilljeborg, 1864 (Marilyn Schotte, pers. comm.)  
    While some attribute this name to Sars (1869), it is actually attributable to Lilljeborg, 1864
