Because this spelling correction is published in the same volume as the original publication, it can be accepted as clear evidence of an inadvertent error, and the spelling must be corrected (see ICZN Article 32.5.1).
Eisner 1966, Paralectotype of Parnassius nomion minschani
P.R. Ackery's 1973 list of Parnassius type specimens (Bulletin of the British Museum (Natural History) Entomology 29(1):4) considers this to be a lectotype/paralectotype designation.
