Spelling The original name Sasekumaria selangora Rullier, 1976 was named for the male collector Mr Sasekumar and the Malaysian state of Selangor. Nishi (1999) appears to have attempted a mandatory emendment for gender (to masculine), in the process mistakenly replacing the original 'r' of Selangor with an 'l'. The original geographic-based name of 'selangora' is incorrectly formulated (adjectival selangorensis would be expected), but in any case must be a noun in apposition. It cannot be an adjectival latinised form subject to gender agreement. Also the original genus appears to be masculine (see entry for Sasekumaria Rullier, 1976) [details]
