Taxonomy Giard (1880) maintains Linotrypane as valid, but indicates its close link to Polygordius. He appears to maintain there is a close link of both genera to Opheliidae. His article in French was republished in English in Annals and Magazine of Natural history, where Linotrypane is misspelled Limnotrypane, an error not in the original. [details]
