Etymology Not stated. Cydōnĭa is an ancient town on the north coast of Crete, now Canea. La Canea has been used as a reference to Canea, so we can speculate (note it is just speculation) that 'Lacydonia' (La Cydonia) was a placename at the time Marion was published. The species group name (miranda) feminine ending indicates the genus gender is feminine, and perhaps the prefix of 'La' does also. Cydonia is today best known as the name given to a region on the planet Mars [details]

From editor or global species database
Authority Marion (1874) validly published the name in a preliminary report, although the full description is in Marion & Bobretzky (1875). For confirmation of the date and authorship see also the Annals & Magazine (1874) translation of the article and p 496 in the Zoological Record for 1874. Most prior authors have used Marion & Bobretzky, 1875 as the authors of the genus (eg Blake 1996). Rizzo et al (2016: 1274) recognised the name was published by Marion alone the previous year, but give the authorship as "Genus Lacydonia Marion and Bobretsky in Marion, 1874" This is not correct. It is Marion alone. Bibliographic authorships are factual, not decided by external knowledge or by notions of assigning credit fairly.  [details]

Etymology Not stated. Cydōnĭa is an ancient town on the north coast of Crete, now Canea. La Canea has been used as a reference to Canea, so we can speculate (note it is just speculation) that 'Lacydonia' (La Cydonia) was a placename at the time Marion was published. The species group name (miranda) feminine ending indicates the genus gender is feminine, and perhaps the prefix of 'La' does also. Cydonia is today best known as the name given to a region on the planet Mars [details]

Grammatical gender Feminine. Although the etymology origin of Lacydonia suggesting a feminine genus is unconfirmed, the usage by Marion of a feminine adjectival ending for 'miranda', and the creation of six further feminine adjectival names by subsequent authors indicates the gender of Lacydonia is accepted as feminine. [details]
