Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Enoplobranchus is a replacement name for Chaetobranchus which is a junior homonym (Chaetobranchus in Pisces). Verrill (1879) first introduced the name without explanation in a dubious publication, but workers since have treated Enoplobranchus as available from Verrill, 1879. [details]
