Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The Hartman Catalogue entry for Rhychobolus correctly gives the author as Claparède, as does Fauchald in the 'pink book' (WoRMS incorrectly had Bobretzky as the author until 2017), but Hartman listed only R. minutus Bobretzky, 1870 as a species (other members were recombinations by Claparède), which may partly explain why the mistake arose. Claparède appears to indicate he considered numerous former Glycera species to belong in his Rhynchobolus, and included descriptions of Rhynchobolus convolutus (Keferstein, 1862), R. siphonostoma delle (Chiaje, 1822), and R. meckelii (Audouin & Milne Edwards, 1833). Böggemann (2002) in his revision of Glyceridae, places Rhynchobolus as a synonym of Glycera, without comment, but he gives no commentary on any of the other synonyms of Glycera. [details]
