Genus Polyctenes Giglioli, 1864

Giglioli (1864) credited the generic name Polyctenes and the specific name molossus to "Westwood and Giglioli", and Westwood (1874) credited the generic name to "Westw." and the specific name to "Westwood et Giglioli", but as the description and figures in the original publication are by Giglioli, he should be considered as the only author of both names.
