here's the best solution: (1) Choose whichever option appeals to you; (2) add a note stating that the other option is also in use and may be correct; (3) move on ...

I am trying to reach a decision which form of the family
in Nemataoda, based on the genus Diplogaster, I should use
in my database.
In his treatment of Nematoda down to level of family, Hodda
(2011, in Zhang
et al.) includes the following two notes on this aspect:
Note 189. There is ongoing controversy over the rendering of
in "gaster" with a suffix. See note [196, regarding]
Diplogasterina Paramonov 1952 (2 superfamilies) : cited as
Chronogastridae (Siddiqi 2003, Holovachov 2004, Mountport
& De Ley 2006), or Chronogasteridae (Ettema et al. 2000,
Gagarin et al. 2003, Hodda 2003, 2007, Lorenzen 1981, Poinar
& Sarbu 1994,
Zullini et al. 2002).
Note 196. There is controversy over the correct rendering of
names based on
the genus name Diplogaster, resting on formation of Latin
the form of nouns (Sudhaus & von Lieven 2003). The
original use as a
suborder was the form Diplogasterata n. subord (Paramonov
1952). Here, the
most frequently used form [i.e. Diplogasterina] is adopted.
On the other hand, Kiontke & Sudhaus in Nematologica,
1996 state: "Baker &
Sanwal (1969) showed that the spelling is "Diplogastridae"
For reference, more recent refs on Google Scholar tend to
favour Diplogastridae, older ones Diplogasteridae so far as
I can see,
contrary to the view expressed in Hodda's treatment.
Does anyone have additional light to throw on this matter?
Advice would be
