Etymology The second part is based on Greek, Stoma, -tos, neuter, a mouth. The first part is based on Greek, Myzo, suck. "Myzostomum" is probably an incorrect latinization. Nevertheless "...stomum" has been commonly used for genera. In WoRMS there are ~144 "...stomum" suffix genera, compared to the more common (~401 names) "...stoma" genera [details]

Nomenclature The troubled early history of Myzostoma/Myzostomum is based on unavailable nomina nuda.

Nomenclature The troubled early history of Myzostoma/Myzostomum is based on unavailable nomina nuda.

Hartman (1959, catalogue p.356) incorrectly adopted Myzostomum as the 'correct' genus spelling, and Leuckart, 1827 as the author and the publication date. She treated Myzostoma as a variant spelling. However, the combination Myzostomum parasiticum is mentioned only as a name in Leuckart 1827 and is a nomen nudum there. Hartman incorrectly has Myzostomum costatum Leuckart, 1827 as the type species, but separately lists M. costatum Leuckart, 1830. The name appears in Oken's Isis (1830:613), where Myzostoma is the spelling, abbreviated as 'Myz. costatum' (along with 'Myz. glabrum'), but it is another nomen nudum. [details]

Taxonomy Graff (1877) correctly states: "Zum ersten Male geschieht unserer Thiere Erwähnung im Jahre 1827, in welchem F. S. Leuckart auf dem Discus der Comatula mediterranea s. europrea einen Schmarotzer findet, dem er den Namen Myzostomum parasiticum beilegt" In approx translation: "For the first time mention of our animals is in the year 1827, in which F. S. Leuckart finds on the disk of the Comatula mediterranea s. europrea a parasite, which he attaches the name Myzostomum parasiticum".
Sherborn's Nomenclator Zoologicus also assigns Myzostomum to Leuckart, 1827. Leuckart did create the name, but it is not available from that 1827 date (nomen nudum). [details]
