We correct an error in [3, Lemma 8.2]. As stated, the lemma only holds for surfaces of genus greater than 1 or in the case α=0. When the genus is 0 or 1 and in addition α≠0, equation (2) in  (in the present corrigendum this is equation (2)) is only a necessary condition for the integrability of J but is not sufficient. In  Lemma 8.2 is only used twice. On page 637 it is used in the trivial case α=0. On page 642 only the "only if" direction is used and the proof of that direction is correct in . In this note we prove a corrected version of [3, Lemma 8.2].
