  • Text: "Although the authors cited "Pherosphaera Archer" in synonymy, the name Microstrobos is not illegitimate because they simultaneously explicitly excluded the type of that name."
  • Text: "The type proposed in the protologue was "M. niphophilus", but since that name was not validly published it cannot be the type under Art. 10.2. The only validly published specific name in the generic protologue was M. fitzgeraldii, which is thus automatically the type."
