That often happens in the transfer from Greek to Latin - but 'tridactyla' is the spelling Linnaeus used, and it is fixed in the rules of zoological nomenclature

The main reason for adding the correct spelling is in case someone ever wants to search birdforum for Kittiwake posts, using the scientific name as the search term

Yes, of course I am aware of and understand that, Nutcracker! I only want to make the point that it is easier to misspell a word if in your own language (and the original one of the word, in this case Greek) it is written in a slightly different way to the "right" one
