Golovatch S. I., Hoffman R. L., Chang H. W. 2011. Identity of Glomeris bicolor Wood, 1865, and the Status of the Generic Names Hyleoglomeris Verhoeff, 1910 and Rhopalomeris Verhoeff, 1906 (Diplopoda, Glomeridae). Tropical Natural History 11(1): 1-8 ...
ABSTRACT: The large, basically Asian genus Hyleoglomeris
Verhoeff, 1910 is shown to encompass still
another species, H. bicolor
(Wood, 1865) from Hong Kong, comb. n. ex Glomeris
Latreille, 1802, based on
fresh topotypic material which is here redescribed and illustrated in due detail. Verhoeff’s (1906)
designation of Glomeris bicolor
as the type species of Rhopalomeris
Verhoeff, 1906, long acknowledged as
based on misidentified material, is here rectified as a misidentified type species, according to the
International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (§ 70.3). Following Silvestri (1917), the synonymy of R.
sensu Verhoeff (1906) with R. carnifex
(Pocock, 1889) is reinstated, the latter taxon also reconfirmed
as the valid type species of Rhopalomeris. The nomenclature of Hyleoglomeris
stabilized, leaving both these genera in their present scopes as defined and used since Silvestri (1917).
