Scientific synonyms and common names

Justitia longimanus (H. Milne Edwards,1837)

Palinurus longimanus H. Milne Edwards, 1837, Histoire naturelle des Crustacés, 2: 295.

Sometimes when used with the generic name Justitia, the specific name is incorrectly spelled longimana, probably because Justitia is a feminine name. However, as longimanus is a noun, its ending is not to be changed with the gender of the generic name (International Code, Art. 31(b)ii).
