Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority The unclear authorship and date of Amphicorina, usually attributed to Quatrefages during the 19th C, has been examined several times in more recent literature (eg Banse, 1957, Rouse 1994, Giangrande 1999, Yoshihara et al 2012). First use of the name was, with little description, presented as a uninomial French name "Amphicorine" by Quatrefages (1850:29, 41), which was later used latinised by Leuckart (1854:311) as "bei Amphicorina n. gen" in a summary of Quatrefages' work and with no description. Claparède (1864:) used Quatrefages' name as subgenus Amphicorina of Fabricia for his new sabellid Fabricia armandi [named for Quatrefages]. However, Quatrefages (1866:474) finally used his 1850 informal name for three new species, placing Claparède's Fabricia (Amphicorina) armandi into a new genus, Oria. Amphicorina cannot be replaced in this manner and thus Oria becomes a junior objective synonym of Amphicorina. It is also a junior homonym to Oria Huebner, 1821 in Lepidoptera.

Yoshihara et al (2012:48) stated that neither Quatrefages (1850) nor Leuckart (1854) combined Amphicorina with any available specific name(s), and thus do not satisfy Article 12.2.5 (ICZN 1999). However, that is not relevant and not the reason their usages are unavailable. They are unavailable because Quatrefages' name was clearly not latinised and Leuckart's latinised Amphicorina was an incidental occurrence which had no accompanying description to define it (Art.12.1) [details]
