Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorDistribution North East Pacific, from San Francisco Bay to Canada.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The specific epithet varius is the Latin word for 'diverse', 'different' or 'various', and refers probably to the three different regions in which the body of the type specimen, a Sacconereis, was divided.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorTaxonomy The original description of the species is not sufficiently good to characterize it or to discriminate it from other species ocurring in the same area. Besides, the type material is lost (Hartman, 1956). For these reasons Nygren (2004) considered the species as Epigamia incertae sedis.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Pacific Ocean, central California: 'Bonito Point' (= Point Bonita), near the outer end of the entrance to San Francisco Bay (geocoordinates not provided, estimated with gazetteer to be approximately lat. 37.817º, long. -122.527º).  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType material Species described with base on a single specimen in the Sacconereis phase (Treadwell, 1914). Types not known to exist, according to Hartman (1956: 248).  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorValidity The species was considered by Nygren (2004) as Epigamia incertae sedis. The original description of the species is not good enough to characterize the species or to discriminate it from other species ocurring in the same area, and moreover the type material is lost.  [details]
