This taxon name is occasionally misprinted in some sources as: "Zymophifus"; "Zymophitus"; "Zymopllilus"; "Zymphilus"; "Zyrnophilus"; "Zysophilus".
Zymophilus is the correct name if this genus is regarded as a separate genus (i.e., if its nomenclatural type is not assigned to another genus whose name is validly published, legitimate and not rejected and has priority).
