Replaces the illegitimate name Bryantella Wolin et al. 2004.
The name Bryantella Wolin et al. 2004 is illegitimate because it is a later homonym of Bryantella Chickering, 1946 (Animalia, Arthropoda, Arachnida, Araneae, Salticidae, Dendryphantinae, Dendryphantini), and a later homonym of Bryantella Britton 1957 (Animalia, Arthropoda, Scarabaeoidea, Scarabaeidae, Melolonthinae). See Principle 2. Consequently, a new genus designation Marvinbryantia has been proposed by Wolin et al. 2008.
