Nomenclature Agassiz, 1860: 194-195: Gegenbaur, perceiving the inappropriateness of uniting the genera Cestum, Cydippe, and Callianira into one family, has called the species included in the genus Cydippe of Eschscholtz Cydippidae, and at the same time pointed out two groups among these Acalephs, which seem to me to constitute in reality two distinct families. To one of these groups he refers the compressed species, of which the Eschscholtzia cordata of Kolliker is the type; to the other, he refers the more rounded species, of which the Cydippe Pileus of Eschscholtz is the type. But, in enumerating the species which he would associate with the latter, he mentions those which are quite as remarkable for their compressed form as the Eschscholtzia cordata. We have therefore to make a preliminary survey of the whole group before we can proceed any further in characterizing this family. It is obvious that when Eschscholtz characterized the genus Cydippe he had chiefly round or oval species in view, the only ones belonging to this type he ever saw. It is, further, unquestionable that his genus Cydippe is synonymous with Pleurobrachia of Fleming, and that, since Pleurobrachia is the older name, it must be retained. The plea entered by Eschscholtz for discarding it, rests on a mistake: Fleming did not call his genus Pleurobranchaea, but Pleurobrachia, on account of its lateral arms, and it can never be confounded with Pleurobranchaea, so named on account of its lateral gills. The name Cydippe must therefore be dropped as a generic name, though there is no objection to retaining it as a family name.  [details]
