  Comment: Penati and Mariotti (2015) emend montoni to moutoni because on page 285 of Gribodo (1894) he writes 'Dedico questa nell specie al Reverendo Padre Mouton missionario, che ne arricchi la mia collezione, in segno di sincera riconoscenza'. [I dedicate this species to the missionary Reverend Father Mouton, who enriched my collection, as a sign of sincere gratitude.] See However, the requirement of ICZN article 32.5.1 requires 'clear evidence of an inadvertent error'. Because Mouton can be Latinized by keeping 'ou' or replacing 'ou' with 'o' or 'u' there is no evidence in the original description that montoni was inadvertent spelling of moutoni
