Note 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Hartman (1959) comments on Lycastis. "Briefly summarized, it has been shown that Lycastis Savigny, 1822 was erected for two species, Nereis versicolor Muller, a true Nereinae, and Nereis armillaris Muller, a syllidae of the genus Typosyllis. Lycastis is thus a synonym of Nereis Linnaeus, 1758."
But this is incorrect. Savigny p.45 refers only Nereis armillaris to Lycastis (Nereis versicolor is a paragraph above & is referred to Lycoris), and thus Lycastis is a junior synonym of Syllis (Typosyllis). [details]
