Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Amphitrite Müller 1771 appears to be derived for a pre-Linnaean species name, Spio cirrata [apparently unpublished but evidently known to Müller and Linnaeus]. Fide AnimalBase: "Established without species included. Müller 1771: 188 referred to a name Spio cirrata attributed to König and argued that the Linnean name cirrosa (Nereis cirrosa Linné, 1767) was gramatically less correct. Müller 1771 did not use any of the two specific names as valid, in his own classification. Müller used a German name for the species and did not use Latin specific names. The fact that the two names were cited from other sources did not imply usage of these names (Art. 11.5.2)." See also further notes under the type species, Amphitrite cirrata[details]
