Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Willey (1902:263) stated that Polynoidae comprised three subfamilies, the Iphionina Savigny, Lepidonotina [new name], and Harmothoina [new name] (where lateral antennae arise at a lower level than the median antenna). However, under the principle of coordination there must always be a nominal subfamily of Polynoinae Kinberg, and the Harmothoinae, based on Harmothoe, would be a synonym of it as Polynoe would be in the same subfamily on Willey's definition. This would apply until Polynoe and Harmothoe were in separate subfamilies. See also Muir (1978). Norlinder et al (2012) also explicitly recently synonymised Harmothoinae into Polynoinae based on molecular analyses [details]
