Spelling As far as is known the genus misspelling 'Leospira' exists only in an unpublished checklist associated with the review of Clarke & Johnston. It is clearly a simple transcription error and does not exist in the article they attribute it to (Hartman, 1967 'Eltanin' p.176) where Laeospira is correctly spelled. [details]
