Taxonomic remark Regarded as misspelled Orycnopsis in original description, based on Orcynus Cuvier, which Gill spelled as Orycnus. But Gill used the spelling Orycnus and the suffix orycnus in other genera, so it probably cannot be regarded as a misspelling, and these Gill's names would need to be submitted to the ICZN to conserve spelling as "orcy".
