Grammatical gender ICZN 30.1.2. a genus-group name that is or ends in a Greek word transliterated into Latin without other changes takes the gender given for that word in standard Greek dictionaries;
The suffix -trema comes from the Greek τρῆμᾰ (neuter): hole, aperture, perforation.
Hickson (1911, p. 452) indicates: "Of the genus Sporadotrema I recognise two species, S. cylindricum (Carter) which is fully dealt with in this paper and S. mesentericum (Carter)." Hickson clearly considers his genus to be neuter. [details]
