Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHomonymy The combination Polycirrus kerguelensis (McIntosh, 1885), previously in Ereutho, is a secondary homonym to Polycirrus kerguelensis McIntosh, 1885. Glasby & Hutchings (2014:68) as first revisers (art.24.2) made the former senior to the latter. They did this by page priority but there is no page priority requirement in such cases in the ICZN rules. Selection is the choice of the revisers. [details]
