From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority According to Nishikawa (1998), "from context, then, Echiurus [ as used in Quatrefages (1847)] can be recognized as the base of the family name and so the latter is available from this publication (ICZN Art. 11 f(i, 1)). The stem of Echiurus is "Echiur-", so· the original incorrect spelling of "Echiurea'' should be corrected to Echiuridae, though still attributed to Quatrefages 1847 (ICZN Art. 33b(ii)), not to Baird (1868), who first spelled it that way." [details]
