From editor or global species database
Authority Jones (1985, 1987) claimed authorship for Vestimentifera, and barely mentions the prior usage of Webb (1969), but while he authored the nomenclatural act of giving it phylum rank, Webb, who created the name at order rank, is the author of the name. Names above family are not regulated by the ICZN code. Jones simply ignores Webb's prior usage, and clearly presents the name as if it did not previously exist before his publication. If Jones had retained Webb's name at a lower rank, there would be some justification that his usage was an entirely new name, but it clearly is not. For many years previously Vestimentifera had been used as a higher rank, including at class-level within Annelida by van der Land & Nørrevang, 1977 [details]

Status Jones (1985) relocated the vestimentiferans (erected as an order) as a phylum, in the process erecting new classes, orders and families. These are currently disused by most, except as informal names. Not all of these redundant names are yet recorded in WoRMS [details]

Synonymy Mesoneurophora (no WoRMS record) was proposed by Mañé-Garzón & Montero (1986, imprint 1985) as a new phylum name, including genus Lamellibrachia, but Vestimentifera Webb, 1969, originally published as an order, was published first when raised to the phylum rank by Jones in late 1985 [details]
