Many thanks for the several replies to this query. It certainly seems that
the Code requires parentheses in this case.
For the curious, there are a number of examples in my specialty group. Here
are two, from the same 1924 paper:
Antichiropus (Solaenodolichopus) teres Verhoeff, 1924 (type species of
Solaenodolichopus by subsequent designation)
Australiosoma (Paraustraliosoma) malandense Verhoeff, 1924 (type species of
Paraustraliosoma by monotypy)
Both subgenera were subsequently elevated to genus, and the 2 type species
now appear in the literature as
Solaenodolichopus teres (Verhoeff, 1924)
Paraustraliosoma malandense Verhoeff, 1924
I will add parentheses to the second name in my next checklist.
Again, many thanks.
