yes, it is clear from this: http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/tnah13/1/4
I ignore such numbers, but there probably isn't a hard and fast rule about editorial additions to article titles. Other examples of this are article classifications like "Short note", etc., etc.

On a completely separate topic...

> R I Pocock (1898) LII.-On the Arachnida taken in the Transvaal and in
> Nyasaland by Mr W. L. Distant and Dr Percy Rendall. Ann. Mag. nat. Hist.
(7) 1:
> 308-321

My interpretation is that "LII" is the article number (52), and hence not
part of the title.  How would others consider this?

This supports Rod's point (which I heartily endorse!):
