Melacoryphus [spelling] lateralis, yes
to avoid spelling errors in sci. names, make sure to copy them [rather than retype!!] from trusted, proofread sources.
in the digital era misspellings are especially perilous because they make relevant pieces of information irretrievable via web or database searches

 
Or worse
they become a source for new errors when the misspelling becomes the copied reference!

 
Thanks again
For the valuable tip.
