Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Historically, the name Nassa was established independently by two authors with different taxonomical extensions:
1. Nassa Röding, 1798, was established for a mixture of, mainly, muricid gastropods. The type species of Nassa, selected by Winckworth (1944), is Nassa picta Röding, 1798 [= Nassa serta (Bruguière, 1798], a species now classified in Muricidae Rapaninae.
2. Nassa Lamarck, 1799, was established for the single species Buccinum mutabile Linnaeus, 1758, a species now classified in Nassariidae.

During all the 19th century and much of the 20th century, when authors used the name Nassa, they meant Lamarck's nassariid Nassa. After the "rediscovery" of Röding's publication Museum Boltenianum, it was realized that the muricid Nassa Röding, 1798 had priority over Nassa Lamarck. The use of Nassa was then switched to Nassa Röding, and for Lamarck's Nassa its oldest synonym Nassarius Duméril, 1805 became in use.

When databasing names in WoRMS, it is not always clear to which of the two Nassa an author originally combined a specific epithet. We have arbitrarily attributed to Nassa Röding the specific epithets of species now placed in Muricidae, and we have attributed to Nassa Lamarck all the others.
