Taxonomy Dolin & Ledon (2002) considered that the lectotype of Simnia nicaeensis Risso, 1826, type species of Simnia, is a juvenile specimen of Simnia spelta (Linnaeus, 1758) type species of Neosimnia Fischer, 1884. This makes Simnia an objective synonym of Neosimnia. Accordingly, all the species treated in Lorenz & Fehse (2009) under Neosimnia should thereby be accepted under Simnia. Likewise, all the species treated by Lorenz & Fehse (2009) under Simnia should thereby be accepted under Xandarovula Cate, 1973. [details]
