Ghost shrimp families

Under Axiidea, there are a number of ghost shrimp families: https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/171356-Axiidea, but only one is given the common name of “ghost shrimps,” which causes a lot of people select this family thinking it should encompass the various ghost shrimp possibilities. At least for Texas, that has meant widespread wrong family ID for ghost shrimps, as all the likely suspects are in the different family Callichirus. Any ideas on rectifying this problem? Can Callichirus be given the same “ghost shrimps” family name? Any other ideas?

I’d just remove the common name for that family. If appropriate, you could then also add that common name to Axiidea instead
