Correct spelling Anavitrinelia or Anavitrinella

McD's original has it as Anavitrinella; maybe the Hodges list was the first to mis-spell it?

Hi Gary,

I thought you were having a joke with us, but then I cut and pasted your two
spellings into a word document at font size 30 and could see the difference:

Anavitrinella versus Anavitrinelia

All old sources I have say the former, except for Hodges 1983 checklist
which uses the latter. So I guess someone will have to check McDonough¹s
1923 publication in which the genus was erected, however: Anavitrinella is a
replacement for Vitrinella so one could presume that he meant Anavitrinella.
Can¹t wait to hear the answer.
