page(s): 122; note: attributes authorship to Koch in Renier [details]   
From editor or global species database
Authority Grube (1855: 121) assigns the authorship just to Koch, but this evidently is Koch as published in Renier, 1847, p.52. Neave assigns the authority to Renier, 1847 (actually to Meneghini, the editor of Renier), but with the note "(Koch MS)" [details]

Editor's comment The Myxicola type species has been assumed to be Terebella infundibulum Renier [1804] by subsequent designation (e.g. Hartman catalogue p.551), but this name is unpublished (ICZN Opinion 316) until 1847. Renier (1847) is reported to have used it again, but in the same publication that named Myxicola. Combined in Myxicola, as noted by Muir & Petersen (2013) it is junior to Amphitrite infundibulum Montagu, 1808 if they represent the same species, and also a junior secondary homonym (both presumably named for the funnel-like appearance of the crown). Further clarification of these issues seems necessary. [details]
