Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDescription Paraspio erected for Spio decoratus Bobretzky on page 360. In the course of a dichotomous key Czerniavsky simply names Paraspio as n.g. with "(Spio decoratus Bobr. 1871)" following. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Foster (1971) is one source for treatment of Paraspio as synonym of Spio. There may well be earlier sources for this. Note P. minuta has been referred to Microspio and P. jonesi is a cataloguing error and thus a nomen nudum. [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType designation Hartman (Catalogue 1959:382) wrongly has Spio mecznikowianus Claparede as the type species, although by monotypy it must be S. decoratus, perhaps because (page 390) she referred S. decoratus to S. mecznikowianus, while also (page 382) she placed Microspio (currently a valid genus with S. mecznikowianus as type) as a synonym of Paraspio. [details]
