Spelling Locke (1998) included an unpublished species description manuscript by Locke & Coates in her thesis as the second chapter. Each chapter was in the form of an article, and it is unclear why Coates is included at this thesis stage as 2nd author, other than that the journal article is said to be in press, and having that authorship. The new Grania was named Grania laxarta, and this spelling was used 38 times in the thesis. Evidently it was expected this chapter two MS would be published in Proceedings of the Biological Society of Washington before the thesis was submitted. However, the article was not published until the following year, 1999, and in the journal version the spelling 'laxarta', which would have been in gender agreement with Grania which is feminine, was changed to a noun in apposition as 'laxartus'. However, Grania laxarta appears in some checklists. The best way to treat this anomaly seems to be to regard the two names as separate, with the thesis name permanently unavailable as unpublished. It precedes the journal-published name, and is not in itself wrongly formulated, so cannot be regarded as a misspelling of the later name. [details]
