Trusted: edited by a thematic editorSynonymy Synonym of M. papillicornis [but see note with M. papillicornis based on the article of Fiege et al. 2000 (Aphia-team)] [details]

Trusted: edited by a thematic editorSynonymy M. mirabilis is not a synonym of M. papillicornis, but both are considered valid species. M. papillicornis recorded from European waters by a number of authors had been shown by Jones (1977) to be a different species, for which he provisionally suggested to use the name M. mirabilis. Later it became obvious that two coexistent and morphologically similar species were confused under the name M. mirabilis (s. Fiege et al. 2000) [details]

From other sources
Unreviewed: has not been verified by a taxonomic editorIdentification All specimens identified after 1994 (the yesr M. johnstone became idenifiable, turn out to be M. johnstoni; all specimens from the 70s and 80s that were re-identified also prove to be M. johnstoni. So chances are good that everything identified as M. mirabilis in the Belgian part of the North Sea is actuall M. johnstoni, and that M. mirabilis does not occur, or at least not as abundantly as previously supposed. [details]
