Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Böggemann (2002) synonymised the southern hemisphere G. kerguelensis with the northern hemisphere G. capitata, thus creating a global or amphipolar taxon. Schüller (2011) rejected this synonymy, finding likely cryptic species of G. kerguelensis in the Weddell Sea. [details]
