Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorNomenclature Audouin & Milne Edwards, 1833 characterised Aonis and described Aonis foliosa, and are credited in Hartman Catalogue (1959:375) with authorship of Aonis in Spionidae, but clearly indicate they are applying a name introduced by Savigny (for Nereis caeca (now Nephtys)). Pettibone (1963:91) treated Aonis sensu Audouin & Milne-Edwards as a junior homonym of Savigny’s name, but this is not the case.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy Malmgren (1867:89) recognised that Aonis foliosa of Audouin & Milne Edwards (1833) was a Nerine (later a synonym of Scolelepis), and did not belong in Aonis of Savigny which was erected for a nepthyid.  [details]
