 Comments
       
  Comment: Both Chelonii and Chelonia are just subsequent latinizations of Chéloniens Brongniart, 1800 [...] it is justified to credit a class-series nomen published first in a non-latinized form to the author of this original nomen, so in this case to Brongniart. (Dubois and Bour, 2010)
