normani, Microthrissa Whitehead [P. J. P.] 1986:281, Figs. 2-3 [Cybium v. 10 (no. 3); ref. 6756] Birrim [Birim] River, Ghana. Holotype: BMNH 1986.1.1.1. Paratypes: (19) BMNH 1986.1.1.2-11, MNHN 1986-0449, CAS-SU 64818 (9). Other specimens: CAS-SU 64818 (6). Named for D. M. Norman, sex not given; but name emended to normanae in a subsequent paper by Whitehead himself. That change is not a mandatory one (not included in Art. 32), but it appears that the incorrect subsequent spelling leonensis is in prevailing usage and should be continued. •Valid as Microthrissa normani Whitehead 1986 -- (Gourène & Teugels 1988:362 [ref. 16242] as normanae, Poll & Gosse 1995:127 [ref. 24781] as normani). •Synonym of Pellonula leonensis Boulenger 1916, with species spelled normanae -- (Lévêque et al. 1989:114 [ref. 26480], Paugy et al. 1990:336 [ref. 26477], Gourène & Teugels in Lévêque et al. 1990:105 [ref. 21589], Gourène & Teugels 1990:151 [ref. 16771], Lévèque et al. 1991:138 [ref. 31367], Gourène & Teugels 1991:220 [ref. 20013], Munroe 2016:1732 [ref. 34560]). Current status: Synonym of Pellonula leonensis Boulenger 1916. Clupeidae. Habitat: freshwater.
