Type species Type species as Amphitrite vesiculosa Montagu, 1815 in Hartman catalogue (1959: 549), but Megalomma type species is actually (by monotypy) Branchiomma koellikeri Claparède, 1869, which is a junior synonym of Sabella lanigera Grube, 1846, now Acromegalomma lanigerum (gender corrected). Amphitrite vesiculosa Montagu, 1815 is now Acromegalomma vesiculosum. In his full work on Megalomma Johansson (1927: 130) introduced Megalomma pacifica as a new species, and recombined several Branchiomma into it, with B koellikeri as a synonym of M. vesiculosa. Unfortunately he had earlier introduced Megalomma in an informal way in 1925 as a new genus for B. koellikeri, and for this reason B. koellikeri is accidentally the type species by monotypy [details]

Homonymy Megalomma is a replaced homonym to an insect genus, Megalomma Westwood, 1841 in Carabidae. It is replaced by Acromegalomma Gil & Nishi, 2017 [details]

Editor's comment All valid Megalomma species are now recombined in Acromegalomma Gil & Nishi, 2017, replacement name for Megalomma [details]

Grammatical gender Megalomma is a neuter gender, just like Branchiomma is. Therefore there are some gender incorrect species-group suffixes created or combined in it that have continued to be used, eg Megalomma lanigera (was in feminine Sabella) which should be M. lanigerum [details]

Homonymy Megalomma is a replaced homonym to an insect genus, Megalomma Westwood, 1841 in Carabidae. It is replaced by Acromegalomma Gil & Nishi, 2017 [details]

Type species Type species as Amphitrite vesiculosa Montagu, 1815 in Hartman catalogue (1959: 549), but Megalomma type species is actually (by monotypy) Branchiomma koellikeri Claparède, 1869, which is a junior synonym of Sabella lanigera Grube, 1846, now Acromegalomma lanigerum (gender corrected).
