Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority Some authors quote authority as Bowerbank, 1861 [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Also in Northwest Atlantic Register of Marine Species. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy This combination was already used by Bowerbank in 1862 and 1864, but he did not provide a proper description and as such these are nomina nuda. Only in 1866 did he provide a proper description and thus authorship and year is Bowerbank, 1866. [details]
