  • Hedyle milaschewitchii Kowalevsky, 1901 (original)
  • Hedyle milatschevitchi Kowalewsky, 1901
  • Microhedyle milaschewitchii (Kowalevsky, 1901)




  • Pontohedyle. Most probably related to “Pontos”, in Greek mythology is an ancient personification of the sea; father of Nereus + “hedys”, sweet.
  • Milaschewitchii. Probably dedicated to K.Os. Milaschewitch (18??-19??). He published about Pontian mollusks at least until 1916 and may likely be identical with Constantin Milaschewitch, who published on palaeontological corals already in 1875 (together with Ewald Becker), because his first name may usually have been spelled with an initial K.
