Publication
Note that date for this citation varies in the literature and sometimes is represented as 1870 due to problems with the date citations in the original publication.
Dating of volume ranges 1867-1871 as explained in following. “Basically, the first Trans CT Acad was set for distribution, then mostly burned up in a warehouse fire, I believe the same one that destroyed many of Dana's "reprints" of the plates from the  U.S. Expl. Exped. Crustacea.  Apparently, Verrill had distributed some pre-prints of Volume 1, then the fire, then he learned of other's works and changed a bunch of names for the "second" printing.”  Eric Lazo-Wasem, in litt. 13.I.2010. “In our bound version of the reprint, Verrill gives an explanation as to what was printed and sent out before the fire. I've enclosed a pdf of that page. It seems everything preceding page 503 had copies distributed  corresponding to the actual publication dates, 1867-1869. However, in the reprint (1871) of those sections, if Verrill saw need to make changes to names, he did, but in typical Verrill fashion he explained it in accompanying footnotes and attributed them to the reprint. So the short answer is, the 1867 paper, does appear to have been published, printed and distributed in 1867.” Dan Drew, in litt. 14.I.2010. In 1871 reprint this paper is noted as “Read Jan. 16, 1867".
