Dear colleagues:

Regarding Rhynchobodo, and in reply to Alfred F. Newton's message:

Haven't seen the text, but Brugerolle probably did establish a type
species for Rhynchobodo, by 'indication' (see art. 13b) - he considered
it to contain only one originally included nominal species, hence it is
possible that a type was designated by monotypy (see Art 68d).
