Editors' Notes
[By refering back to p.433 in his Prodromus of 1881, Haeckel in 1887a obviously means Tetrahedrina to be an emendation of the name Tetraedrina which is unjustified according to the provisions of ICZN (1961) art. 33a. Tetrahedrina is thus a junior objective synonym of Tetraedrina Haeckel 1887a.
