Hi Mary,

In zoology (as opposed to botany) there is no requirement for a combination
to be previously published to use it - anyone can recombine a specific
epithet with a different genus if they have a reason to do so, the original
authorship remains, it is just cited in parentheses to show that the genus
has been changed (also a rank change of itself does not generate a change
of authorship). Thus:

Canis mesomelas Schreber, 1775
Canis schmidti Noack, 1897
or:
Canis mesomelas schmidti Noack, 1897

Or the same if considered better placed in Lupulella: (no "combining
author" is cited or needs to previously exist)
Lupulella mesomelas (Schreber, 1775)
Lupulella mesomelas schmidti (Noack, 1897)

The comma between the author name and the year is optional. I prefer it but
some do not, which is also fine.

Hope this helps, - Tony
