|Comments||Name conserved vs. Arachnodiscus Bailey ex Ehrenberg 1849 (nom. rej.) (see ICBN 1996, ref. 006916, p. 200). No binomials were formed with this genus name in Shadbolt 1852, however an unnamed species is illustrated on pl. 11, fig. 1-5. A description is also given the same year (1852) in Pritchard's Hist. Infus. Ed. 3, 1952 (ref. 001062), a publication posterior to Shadbolt's paper (ref. 000820). One species, Arachnoidiscus japonicus, is included in this genus by Pritchard. ICBN (1956) also gives rejected name Hemiptychus Ehrenb. 1848 (nomenclatural synonym of Arachnoidiscus Bailey ex Ehrenberg).|
