WoRMS note details

Editor's comment
The type material was not preserved, but Strelzov (1973) studied a specimen collected in 1924 at the area of Novaya Zemlya and determined by I.G. Zachs as <i>Aricidea uschakowi</i> Zachs, 1925. The specimen was identified by Strelzov (1973) as <i>Aricidea (Allia) nolani</i> Webster & Benedict, 1887, and the two species were synonymized. Strelzov (1973) also considered <i>A. suecica</i> Eliason, 1920 as a junior synonym of <i>A. nolani</i>, with base on the comparison of the specimens studied by Strelzov (including specimens from Eliason's collection) and the description of <i>A. nolani</i>. With <i>A. nolani</i> being considered as indeterminable by Pettibone <i>in</i> Hartley (1981), <i>A. suecica</i> became a valid species, including this way <i>A. uschakowi</i> as a junior synonym.
