I'm not sure about this, Jim!

Firstly, and annoyingly, Gardeners' Chronicle (n.s.) 2 (1874) is the only issue

Re: Stephanoscyphus mirabilis Allman, Gard. Chron., n.s., 2: 786. 19 Dec 1874.

While working on the nomenclature of plants I came across the above in a report 
of a Linnean Society meeting where the above name was validated before it 
appeared in the journal in early 1875. As the Gardeners' Chronicle might not be 
a normal source of names for animals, I call attention to this to the attention 
of zoologists.
