My opinion on Hemipodus vs Hemipodia is basically that Markus has done 
what should have been done by previous reviewers.  These taxa are not 
particularly or unusually important in the non-systematic literature; it is not an 
issue of digging up a very dubious name out of the graveyard of systematics: 
 There can be no doubt that they cover the same taxa. Furthermore with the 
computerization of citations etc., it is not going to lead to loss of information.  
I agree with Geoff that I sort of regret these kinds of changes.  I will probably 
continue, at least orally, to refer to these four species (which is not too often) 
by the name Hemipodus and then remember afterwards that I was not 
supposed to do so!
