Nomenclator Zoologicus also lists a Duncania de Koninck 1871 as n.n. 
but also as different from the 1872 version.  

Duncania Bayle is a replacement name for Macrocheilus Phillips, 1841 
non Kirby, 1838.  So is Soleniscus Meek and Worthen, 1861 (with two 
later homonyms listed in NZ) and Macrochilina Bayle, 1880.. the 
Treatise on Invertebrate Paleontology also lists a Macrochilus 
Lindstrom, 1884, but that name does not obviously appear in his 1884 
Silurian Gastropoda and Pteropoda of Gotland (might be a typo tucked 
away in the text somewhere).  Macrochilus Agassiz, 1846 is an invalid 
emendation; NZ suggests he used it for both prior Macrocheilus.
