[Taxacom] Citation

Strictly speaking, there is no "citation" for that taxon name, as names for classes are not regulated by any code of nomenclature. Attribution of Arachnida to Cuvier 1812 is meaningless and potentially rather misleading given how taxonomic concepts change over time.

 Hi all,
 
 Does anyone know the correct citation for Arachnida Cuvier,
 1812?
 
 Best wishes,
