RhombozoaDicyemida – The current page says: Although the name "Dicyemida" precedes "Rhombozoa" in usage, and is preferred by most contemporary authors, "Rhombozoa" still enjoys much popular support. (wikilink mine) - Name precedence and preference by authors is what matters. Cyclopiatalk 22:32, 2 July 2011 (UTC)

Naming and name sources[edit]

Anyone able to clear up the nomenclature? The taxobox information doesn't match what's stated on the page. The page states: the name "Dicyemida" precedes "Rhombozoa" in usage, and is preferred by most contemporary authors. It doesn't specifically discuss discovery and naming. However, the taxobox gives both Krohn 1839 and van Beneden 1876 separately as authorities - only van Beneden shows as that copy of the parameter appears later in the template. I've tracked down Krohn's citation to Krohn, A. 1839. Uber das Vorkommen von Entozoen und Krystallablagerungen in den schwammigen Venenanhängen einiger Cephalopoden. "Neue Notizen aus dem Gebiet der Natur- und Heilkunde" 11 :213-216 and taken a look at it. I couldn't find any sign of a name, only a description. It's possible that Kölliker 1882 is the origin of the name - ITIS notes it for an order Dicyemida and van Beneden 1876 refers to it (Bulletins de L'Acadèmie Royale des Sciences, des Lettres et des Beaux-Arts de Belgique, ser. 2, vol. 41, here on p1160) as his name. The Kölliker work cited is Albert Kölliker "über Dicyema paradoxum der Schmarotzer der Venenanhänge der Cephalopoden". Berichte von der Königlichen Zootomischen Anstalt zu Würzburg 2. Ber., 4849, p. 59.

Things I haven't been able to track down: whether Kölliker is actually the source of the name; when and where Rhombozoa comes into the picture. Any info would be useful. -- Shimmin Beg (talk) 19:45, 11 February 2013 (UTC)
