@bobby23 - the paper you link to seems to suggest that the new name for the Indonesian/mainland SE Asian species should be P. musangUS, not P. musangA.
Am I missing something?

@leptonia there appears to be a conflict between the epithet prefered by our external authority (musanga) versus the paper they cite (musangus). I am inclined to follow the sourced document because the genus and epithet should both be masculine, a revision the MDD follows elsewhere, but must have missed here.

@bobby23 thanks for the explanation.
