Man thats impressive collection and great thread.
I appreciate that You use full names (including author and year, as it should be), just small note, in zoology brackets have their meaning and rules of use.
In case of taxa higher than species (e.g. genus, family, ...), author and year are never in brackets. e.g.:
Stromatopelminae Schmidt, 1993
Stromatopelma Karsch, 1881
In case of species (or subspecies), brackets are used only in case that taxon was originally described within different genus than is its current classification. e.g.:
Acanthoscurria chacoana Brèthes, 1909 - described as it is, no brackets
Acanthoscurria musculosa Simon, 1892 - again, described as it is, no brackets
Acanthoscurria geniculata (C.L. Koch, 1841) - described as Mygale geniculata, we use brackets to indicate change of original combination
Acanthoscurria proxima (Mello-Leitão, 1923) - described as Hemiercus proximus, brackets used to indicate genus change
only classification changes are to be indicated, e.g.:
Brachypelma albopilosum Valerio, 1980 - described as Brachypelma albopilosa, spelling changed but we do not use brackets
Sorry for this little lesson, good luck and continue Your great work.
Is this just due to the fact that the name remained 'the same,' but the gender was corrected?
Yep, gender forms of the same word are considered the same name.
