Peltonychia Roewer, 1935[1] is a genus in the family Travuniidae, subfamily Travuniinae.

ValidityEdit

The genus was deemed to be unavailable because it was allegedly published without designation of a type species after 1930 (Kury & Mendes 2007[2]). But it was later established that many pages before the description, the introduction of the paper contained such designation (Kury et al. 2014)[3].
