## Abstract

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 [3] (in the present corrigendum this is equation (2)) is only a necessary condition for the integrability of $J$ but is not sufficient. In [3] 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 [3]. In this note we prove a corrected version of [3, Lemma 8.2].
