Abstract [en]

The spelling of 37 species-group names with the beetle family Dytiscidae is corrected relative to the most recent worldcatalogue. The original spelling of 11 specific and subspecific names based on personal names are considered incorrectas having the wrong suffix relative to the given etymology. For three specific names, the original spelling is consideredcorrect, and the previously used corrections are unjustified. The remaining names dealt with are adjectives, or nouns misinterpretedas adjectives, and their inflection relative to the genus names is revised.
