Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorStatus McIntosh (1885: 38): "There is nothing in the description of the Aphrodita echidna of M. de Quatrefages to give certainty in contrasting it with others ... Nothing further is known of the French specimen than that it was procured off South America by A. d’Orbigny."
