Two emendations to Stahnke's (1974) "Revision and keys to the higher categories of Vejovidae" are given. First, Stahnke's nomenclatorial decision to use the spelling "Vejovis", rather than the correct original spelling of Vaejovis Koch, is based on an inappropriate article of the Code, and contradicts the ruling relative to this nomenclatorial problem. Thus, Vaejovidae, Vaejovinae, and Vaejovis are the correct spellings for the family, subfamily, and genus, respectively. Taxonomically, the holotype of Physoctonus physurus Mello-Leitao is redescribed, establishing that this supposedly vaejovid taxon is a junior synonym of Rhopalurus debilis (Koch), belonging to the family Buthidae.
