Editor's comment This combination is not formally published in literature, nor was it listed in WoRMS prior to Hutchings et al (2020) (cf their text), but Paramarphysa orientalis was the last 'orphan' taxon remaining in the invalid genus Paramarphysa, after other species were recombined in Marphysa or Nicidion. Hutchings et al (2020: 285) suggested it belonged to the Marphysa "Aenea-group (compound falcigers present; compound spinigers absent)", but did not formally place it there.  [details]
