  • Artedia squamata was named by Linnaeus in honour of Peter Artedi (1705–1735), a Swedish naturalist. Artedi designed the system of naming organisms by a generic name and a specific epithet. Based on that, Linnaeus created the binominal nomenclature and hierarchical classification that is still in use for all organisms.
