IPNI lists what appear to be quite a few more potential candidates 

with "spix%" in the species space and with "IK" only marked gives
close to two dozen names (only a few recombinations).

Dear colleagues,

the Zoologische Staatssammlung Munich will celebrate its bi-centennial 
birthday in early 2011. Accordingly, we are currently looking for taxon 
names associated with our first director ("conservator"), Johann Baptist 
Ritter von Spix.
Find enclosed a preliminary list, what we already have collected.
We would be very grateful, if you could inform us about any other taxon 
name associated with Spix.
Many thanks in advance.
