From editor or global species database
Editor's comment C. & F. Monniot 1984, 1987 give this species as Boltenia pilosa (Millar, 1955) with no discussion about the original description by Millar or why they moved it to the genus Boltenia. I have read Millar's original description and while he says there are some characteristics of both the Styelidae and Pyuridae, it is obvious to me that he correctly placed it in the Styelidae.  [details]
