Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorGrammatical gender Genus Branchiomma is neuter, as deriving from the neuter Greek word for eye, omma, ommatos. Some authors from at least the 1880s recognized this, but others treated it as feminine. Of significant modern authors Knight-Jones (eg 1994) was probably first consistently to make gender corrections of existing epithets  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Kölliker introduces his new genus Branchiomma briefly in passing, while making extensive comments on Dalyell's species Amphitrite bombyx, thus ("Was das Aeussere der fraglichen Annelide betrifft, die ich mit dem Namen Branchiomma Dalyellii bezeichnen will, da dieselbe auf jeden Fall eine neue Gattung darstellt ..."). The name Branchiomma dalyellii is a superfluous species name as the new combination should have been Branchiomma bombyx [details]
