Alain Dubois urn:lsid:zoobank.org:pub:51E82A38-C145-4DFD-B44F-C4FB75337873 The proposal of Tyler & Menzies (2013) to replace the original spelling of the frog species Nyctimystes cheesmani by Nyctimystes cheesmanae is shown to be unwarranted and should not be adopted. This case provides an opportunity to revisit some basic rules of Latin grammar and to provide again a detailed discussion about the question of the spelling of species nomina in the genitive case dedicated to persons.
