From editor or global species database
Editor's comment The name Nassa cinctella A. Adams, 1852, is a junior homonym of Nassa cinctella Gould, 1850, and the name Nassarius cinctellus (A. Adams, 1852) is thus nomenclaturally invalid. However, in the absence of a revision of southern Atlantic nassariids, it is uncertain whether there may be another name available for the same taxonomical species, or whether a replacement name is needed. Pending such a revision, WoRMS maintains the status quo by listing the two Nassarius cinctellus of Gould, 1850, and A. Adams, 1852, as valid. [details]
