  Comment: Wilson et al. (2019:368) note, 'In the original combination, the specific epithet isabella has to be regarded as a noun in apposition. It is not a Latin or Latinized word, but it qualifies as the transliterated English word Isabella, and 'is to be treated as indeclinable' under article 31.2.3 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. As a result, the current combination must read D. isabella'
