[(but designated for *Celerio Oken and cited as 'gallii' Rottemburg, 1775, which Tutt placed on page 547 as a synonym of galii [Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775). Type fixed by Tutt, 1902 (see http://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/item/121267#page/370/mode/2up)]
Fletcher & Nye (1982) stated:-
As Agassiz did not included any species, but referred Celerio to Oken, 1815 (see below), the type-species must be selected from one of the two species originally included by Oken.
S. galii is a junior subjective synonym of Sphinx gallii Rottemburg, 1775, Naturforscher, Halle 7: 107. In a ruling by the International Commission on Zoological Nomenclature, 1958, Opin. Decl. int. Commn zool. Nom. 19 (Opinion 516): 3-34, volumes 6 and 7 of the Naturforscher, Halle published in 1775 were given precedence over [Denis & Schiffermüller], 1775, Ankündung syst. Werkes Schmett. Wienergegend.
The Lepidoptera part of the Nomencl. zool. (Nom. syst. Generum Anim.) was included in fascicles 9 and 10 issued in one wrapper dated 1846.
