From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSpelling Comment on the spelling of coeca/caeca. Under ICZN article 58 coeca and caeca are deemed identical. Örsted used coecum, so this spelling should be maintained, but while the species was included in Polydora the spelling 'caeca' was usual practice.  [details]
