Dicellura Cook 1896

NOMEN: Dicellura Cook 1896 (VII) [O.F. Cook. Brandtia; a series of occasional papers on Diplopoda and other Arthropoda. Huntington, New York, 1896]

ORIGINAL LISTED MEMBERSHIP (Cook 1896):

JUNIOR CIRCUMSCRIPTIONAL SYNONYM:
= Uratochelia Ashmead 1896 (X)

NON-MONOSEMANTIC CIRCUMSCRIPTIONAL SYNONYM (without Prodicellura):
= Dicellurata Pages 1959 (= Dicellura s.str.)

TYPIFIED NAME IN BASIC FORMAT: Iapyx/fg [fg:1864]
TYPIFIED NAMES IN USE: Iapyx (sensu Haliday 1864), Iapygidae, Iapygoidea, Iapygina, Iapygida

MODERN STATUS: the valid, the oldest name of a holophyletic taxon (Dicellura s.str. - see below).

COMMENT. The name Dicellura Cook 1896 (which does not belong to genus-group and is regarded by us as a circumscription-based name) is a hemihomonym of a generic name Dicellura Haliday 1865 (which is a junior objective synonym of the generic name Iapyx Haliday 1864). 

The name Dicellura initially was given to an order, which included a family Iapygidae, but did not include
Campodeidae; no one of representatives of Prodicellura was described at that time. After that, different authors differently
concretized meaning of the name Dicellura. The name Dicellura s.str. (sensu Borner 1904) (= Dicellurata Pages 1959) belongs to a taxon, which does not include Prodicellura; this taxon is holophyletic (Kluge 2000). The name Dicellura s.l. (sensu Cook 1899 [ New Dicellura. - Proc. Entomol. Soc. Washington, 4: 222-229]) belongs to a taxon, which unites Dicellurata and Prodicellura;  holophyly of this taxon is questionable.
