If it helps, that alternative spelling (and others) is commented on within the Evenhuis 2010 reference listing his genus-group names for Diptera, within the "Biography" section:
"His second surname has appeared in various orthographies (e.g., “Desvoidy”, “Duvoidy”, “Des Voidy”, “des Voidy” and “Devoidy”), and the first name even as “Robinot”, making searches for all of his published works (and for reviews of them) sometimes difficult. The most common spelling of his surname and the one seen in his signatures is “Robineau-Desvoidy” [see Figs. 2–3; and see sample in Séguy (1925: 131)]. On his death certificate, he is recorded as “Jean Baptiste Robineau Desvoidy”, without hyphens (Royer, 1931)." Monster Iestyn (talk) 20:50, 4 August 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
