It looks like there is a fairly clear answer.

The most recent analysis (Nassig & Spiedel 2007, cited and forwarded to 
me by John Grehan, as it is not available online) gives a different 
summary from that of the earlier reviews (Higgins 1963 and Bridges 
1988), with one very important comment:

"The valid publication date of the names for new taxa... introduced in 
plates 75-107 is to some extent debatable, because the illustrations and 
names were published in 1874 but the short text of the "explanations" 
only in 1875."

Since the name in dispute is one of these, at least I now know we cannot 
apply the First Reviser principle, since the two spellings were 
apparently NOT published simultaneously. I'll follow this up on the ICZN 
list shortly.
