Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorIdentification Lineus viridis and NE USA Ramphogordius sanguineus (formerly Lineus socialis) are easily confused by non-specialists and even nemertinologists not very familiar with them. Hence, records attributed to either are suspect if ID was not done by one of few experts. [details]
