This guy seems to be fictional. Compare these two:

And I'm pretty sure it's not the Swedish entomologist Q6091572 Quasi-grip (talk) 19:34, 10 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Quasi-grip: Wow, that is odd... it appears that head editor of Zootaxa Zhi-Qiang Zhang himself must have somehow mixed up Oskar Theodor Sandahl with Tetsuya Sanda, the actual third author of this article, when entering the ZooBank data? What really puzzles me is the fact he even registered the ZooBank entry for Oskar Theodor Sandahl himself even, on the same day: Monster Iestyn (talk) 01:22, 11 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
There is now at least a ZooBank entry for Tetsuya Sanda, registered in 2022: Monster Iestyn (talk) 01:41, 11 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Monster Iestyn: I work with both Zhi-Quang and Richard Pyle (ZooBank) would you like me to check into this? Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 02:40, 11 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Faendalimas: Yes please, that would be helpful. Really, the third author of just needs to be corrected to Tetsuya Sanda instead of Oskar Theodor Sandahl. Monster Iestyn (talk) 02:46, 11 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have emailed them Richard is travelling right now so cannot access ZooBank directly but will get back asap. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 12:21, 12 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Monster Iestyn: ok this has all been fixed, Zhi Qiang has confirmed that the names as stated on the doi are the correct authors and the ZooBank Record has now been fixed accordingly. As such I would concur with @Quasi-grip: that this author page should be speedy deleted. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 03:55, 13 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
