Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType species Quatrefages included 3 new species and also Nais picta in his new genus, without naming a type species (as is normal practice for the time). Subsequent authors treat Nais picta as type, but in any case Hartman (1959 catalogue) assigns the other names to N. picta [details]
