    This one should probably be for the moth (rather than lizard) genus.

    Kevin, thanks for pointing this out -- we'll add this to our collections of messed up names and try to get it sorted out soon. Refs are very helpful.

    Kevin de Queiroz commented on "Cyclura":

    There are two problems with this (overview) page (classification part): 1) a lizard taxon is embedded in the middle of a nested hierarchy of insect taxa; 2) although there is an insect genus with the same name (the one that properly belongs here), but it is a junior synonym of the lizard name, and therefore should not be used (see http://www.nhm.ac.uk/research-curation/research/projects/butmoth/search/GenusDetails.dsml?NUMBER=7717.0 and ftp://193.166.3.2/pub/sci/bio/life/insecta/lepidoptera/ditrysia/drepanoidea/drepanidae/drepaninae/amphitorna/index.html). Thanks.
