Etymology 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]

Taxonomy 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]

Distribution North East Pacific, from San Francisco Bay to Canada.  [details]

Etymology 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]

Taxonomy 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]

Type 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]

Type 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]

Validity 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]
