Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Persson et al. (2005), Paul et al (2010), Martinez et al (2013), and Law et al (2014) all use the same sequences (from voucher SNHM 75833) said to come from a Neolipobranchius sp. to suggest the genus is a Travisia synonym as this specimen clusters with Travisia species. No taxonomic information was published on the specimen (SMNH collection location 39.898 -69.6607, depth unknown, from offshore shelf NW Atlantic). The deepsea Neolipobranchius type species, N. glabrus, was collected from two degrees of latitude further South at 37.45, -68.6833, 4436 m deep.  [details]
