Not sure about the binomial name[edit]

For the record, I'm not sure how well the name Crysomallon squamiferum is accepted, as almost all of the references to this name online are in Japanese. Melchoir (talk) 10:23, 11 May 2008 (UTC)

This name Crysomallon squamiferum is still just a 'leaked' MS name, unpublished as indicated and and Pherusan (talk) 22:03, 15 February 2015 (UTC)

Well, I got it from the Japanese Wikipedia article ja:ウロコフネタマガイ, 2008 version, which seems to have gotten it from the following PDF hosted by the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology in 2007:, which begins "ウロコフネタマガイ(Crysomallon squamiferum)をはじめとするインド洋カイレイフィールドにて採集された熱水性 生物の採集・船上飼育について ○北田 貢・三宅 裕志・(新江ノ島水族館)、鈴木 庸平((独)産業技術総合研究所)、高井 研(JAMSTEC)" I guess Ken Takai of JAMSTEC might be able to trace it from there.

Crysomallon squamiferum is a temporary name, as it has not been validly published in the sense of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. I've mentioned this in the article. JoJan (talk) 13:54, 16 February 2015 (UTC)
