GENUS Lagidium

Author:Meyen, 1833.
Citation:Nouv. Acta Acad. Caes. Leop.-Carol., 16(2): 576.
Type Species:Lagidium peruanum Meyen, 1833.
Comments:Revised by Osgood (1943). Viscaccia Oken, 1816 has precedence over Lagidium, but Lagidium was adopted in preference to Viscaccia by suspension of the rules (Opinion 110, International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, 1929a). However, names from Okenís 1816 "Lehrbuch der Naturgeschichte" are non-Linnaean and not available and neither an opinion nor suspension of the Rules was required for the recognition of Lagidium (Hershkovitz, 1949b).
