 Comments
       
  Comment: Gray (1838) named this species in honour of the donor of the holotype, Dr Turnbull Christie, but spelled the name incorrectly as christii. Thomas (1911) used the spelling christiei, thus correcting the 'incorrect original spelling' by a 'corrected subsequent spelling' according to Articles 32.4 and 32.5 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. A correction in accordance with Article 32.5 is a 'justified emendation' and the name thus corrected retains the authorship and date of the original spelling (Article 19.2). Plecotus christiei has remained in common usage since Thomas (1911) (Spitzenberger et al., 2006)
