Synonyms and other taxonomic changes
Decodes Obraztsov, 1961 (1)
Based on Busck's unpublished concept.
Explanation of Names
According to Obraztsov: "The name Decodes represents probably an arbitrary combination of letters, imitating the name Torticodes, and should therefore be treated as being of the masculine gender." Perhaps the first syllable derives from de (Latin for "from"). (1)
