Notes:
Nye & Fletcher (1991) stated:-

Paradoxus Stainton, 1869, is not preoccupied by * Paradoxus Bigsby, 1825, J. Acad. nat. Sci. Philad. 4: 365, - Trilobita. Bigsby referred on page 368 to "the genus Paradoxus of Brongniart". As there is no such genus * Paradoxus Bigsby should be treated as an incorrect subsequent spelling of Paradoxides Brougniart, 1822, in Brongniart & Desmarest, Hist. nat. Crustacés fossiles: 31, - Trilobita.
