Strophiops recessa Maynard and Clapp in Maynard, 1919

Original Description

"Maynard (1919c:57, fig. 29A, B) first used the binomen Strophiops recessa as an example of a species that has an enlarged, ear-like frontal bar encroaching on the umbilicus, and included illustrations (Figures 29 A, B) captioned "S. recessa M. & C."  The association of a new species group name with an illustration of the taxon being named prior to 1931 makes the name Strophiops recessa Maynard and Clapp in Maynard, 1919c: 57, figs. 29 A, B available on December 31, 1919 (Article 12.2.7, ICZN, 1999:17), prior to the intended description of this species (Maynard and Clapp in Maynard, 1920d:122, Plate 24, figs. 2, 3)." Harasewych et al. (2007:443-444)
