The question has arisen elsewhere,
what is the plural of the platypus.

Here's one statement:
In the English language,
there is no universally agreed plural form of "platypus."
Scientists may say "platypuses" or "platypus."
"Platypi" is a form of pseudo-Latin;
going by the word's Greek roots,
the plural would be "platypodes."
