If a difference between the two terms is perceived, stemmatology is the wider term, whereas stemmatics may be confined to the Lachmannian method.

The Latin term 'stemmatologia' was already in use in the 17th century in the work Stemmatologia Sangallensis oder Geschlecht-Register aller in der Stadt St.Gallen verbürgerten und sich noch im Wesen findenden Geschlechtern, [...] bis auf das Jahr 1732 von Johann Jacob Scherrer  [...]. St. Gallen 1752-1769, 27 volumes. But here the stemmata it studies were people's genealogical trees and not yet those of manuscripts. The word stemmatographia was synonymously (cf. J. Ramminger, stemmatographia, in ders., Neulateinische Wortliste. Ein Wörterbuch des Lateinischen von Petrarca bis 1700URL: www.neulatein.de/words/1/001317.htm (used on 12.12.2014)).
