Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority Scolopendra marina is an annelid, and was included in the 10th edtiion of Systema Naturae and briefly described by Linnaeus (1758: 639). The name was pre-Linnaean. Slabber is not author of Scolopendra marina. 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 a spionid that he stated to be closer to 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 editorSynonymy On usage in Annelida. Undoubtedly applied to several species over time (eg Slabber's usages). The 13th (Gmelin) edition of Systema Naturae removed the species Scolopendra marina from the Insecta, and reduced it to a synonym under Nereis versicolor and noctiluca [details]
