Dear collegues,
I am finishing a revision of the genus Typosyllis Langerhans
(Syllidae) for Ph.D. thesis at the University of Osnabrueck.

When generating the list of cited literature, I stumbled over unclarity
how to cite and alphabetize some few authors with aristocratic title. As
there seems to be no guideline and moreover, as other authors seem to
have these "problems" also (according to ununiformity I noticed in the
references), I would like to throw this question into discussion and would
be grateful for receiving any advice.

Below I listed those authors that make me trouble:

BLAINVILLE, H. DE  or  DE BLAINVILLE, H.
(if DE BLAINVILLE, alphabetize as "B" or "D" in references?)

DALLA TORRE, K. W. VON  or  VON DALLA TORRE, K. W.
(alphabetize as "D", "T" or "V"?)

CHIAJE, S. DELLE  or  DELLE CHIAJE, S.
(alphabetize as "C" or "D"?)

LINNE, CHARLES  or  LINNAEUS, CAROLUS

MARENZELLER, E. VON  or  VON MARENZELLER, E.
(alphabetize as "M" or "V"?)

MCINTOSH, W.C.
(alphabetize as "Mc" or "Mac"?)

PLESSIS, G. DU  or  DU PLESSIS, G.
(alphabetize as "P" or "D"?)

SAINT-JOSEPH, (BARON) A. DE  or  DE SAINT-JOSEPH, A.
(alphabetize as "S" or "D", with or without "Baron"?)

D'URBAN, W.S.M.  or  URBAN, W.S.M. D'
(alphabetize as "U" or "D"?)

WILLEMOES-SUHM, R. VON  or  VON WILLEMOES-SUHM, R.
(alphabetize as "W" or "V"?)

With many thanks in advance.
