From editor or global species database
Classification According to Nygren (2004) the taxonomic position of this species within the Autolytinae is ambiguous but most probably belongs to Epigamia; thus, even tough the name Autolytus is considered to be a junior synonym of Myrianida, Nygren (2004) avoided to place the species within one of the accepted genera, retaining the traditional nomenclature and considering it as Epigamia incertae sedis.  [details]

Depth range 55 m. [details]

Distribution Subantarctic Indian Ocean, Kerguelen Islands. [details]

Etymology The species is dedicated to John Fiot Lee Pearse Maclear (b. Cape Town, 27 June 1838 - d. Niagara, 17 July 1907), Commander of HMS Challenger, during the Challenger Expedition (1872-1876), under the commission captain Sir George Nares.  [details]

Habitat Volcanic mud.  [details]

Introduced species remark This is an Antarctic, not an European species.  [details]

Type locality Kerguelen Islands, off Greenland Harbour. The geocoordinates provided, 49º37'S, 70º16'E, place the station on land. The correct values were here considered to be approximately 49º39'S, 70º16'E.  [details]
