Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorAuthority The dilemma here is that the author is not Maciolek, who did not publish relevant content from her thesis (where the name was initiated) until 2000. Clearly López-Jamar was only referencing her earlier work rather than including her diagnostic (1983) content, so the genus authorship formulation of Maciolek in López-Jamar as used by Maciolek (2000) and more recently by Meißner, Bick, Guggolz & Götting, 2014:208 cannot be correct. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDepth range 65-3300 m. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution Western Atlantic Ocean: North Carolina to the Gulf of Mexico. Eastern Atlantic Ocean: Gulf of Cádiz, Iberian Peninsula; Mediterranean Sea; South Africa. Pacific Ocean: Japan. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorPublication date López-Jamar (1989) referenced the Aonidella description of Maciolek's (1983) thesis as though it had been a valid publication, but names in unpublished theses do not enter nomenclature. Aonidella is thus published first by López-Jamar in 1989. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType species López-Jamar (1989) clearly included both Prionospio cirrobranchiata and Aonidella dayi in Aonidella, but did not designate a type species. By subsequent designation (Maciolek, 2000:529) it is P. cirrobranchiata [details]
