Editors' Notes
Subgenus Calocycloma (part) Haeckel 1887, p.1384

Haeckel (1887, p.1384) includes both the third and fourth subgenus of Calocyclas under this name. The description applied by that writer to the fourth subgenus, and not to the third one, is used in this report, the third subgenus being defined as having a smooth thorax and spiny abdomen. A new name appears desirable.
