Dear Andy,

Shûhei Nomura born in 1962 is an expert on pselaphine staphylinids. I 
was not aware of the other person with the same name, but based on the 
papers listed in Wikispecies, Nomura (I) published three papers on a 
different family, Scarabaeidae.

The paper you cite must be by Shûhei Nomura the pselaphine expert, born 
in 1962. It is easy to contact the author by email if you have more 

Hope this helps,
