Abstract

The tantulocaridan family Cumoniscidae Nierstrasz & Brender à Brandis, 1923, (type genus: Cumoniscus Bonnier, 1903), is the senior subjective synonym of Deoterthridae Boxshall & Lincoln, 1987 (type genus: Deoterthron Bradford & Hewitt, 1980), as both type genera are considered to belong to the same family-level taxon. Issues regarding the priority of Cumoniscus Bonnier, 1903, over Cumoniscus Bonnier, in Lo Bianco, 1903, are also discussed.
