Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment Apparently the assumption that Slabber (1781) intended to create a new genus and species with the binomen Scolopendra marina is erroneous. Scolopendra and Scolopendra marina had been previously named and briefly described by Linnaeus (1758: 637 and 639). Later Slabber (1781) used this binomen to designate some marine worms that seemed to fit Linnaeus' vague description. In fact, Slabber (1781) applied the name Scolopendra marina to two very different forms of marine worms. First, to an unnamed polydorid species that he stated to be closer to the genus Nereis, also by Linnaeus, than to Scolopendra (Slabber, 1781: 25-29, plate VII figs. 1-2), and secondly to an indeterminable autolytine (Slabber, 1781: 44-46, plate X figs. 3-5), which he stated to be close to the previous form.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The genus Scolopendra Slabber, 1781 was considered by Nygren (2004: 115) as a nomen oblitum, according to Article 23.9.1 of the ICZN (1999).  [details]
