Notes 
From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment Corrected the spelling to 'whiteavesii', corrected the type locality to NOT the New Zealand Queen Charlotte Sound. The original McIntosh text makes clear Brada whiteavesii was collected in North America, apparently in the Canadian Queen Charlotte Sound, but is wrongly recorded as if from New Zealand in the Hartman Catalogue (1959: 414) [G. Read, April 2017] [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology named after the collector "Mr Whiteaves" [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorType locality Queen Charlotte Sound, Canada, (gazetteer) N 51° 29' 58''W 128° 30' 11'', 18 m (10 fathoms). There is no Challenger Station mentioned and it appears the material came from Whiteaves' collections (said to be St Lawrence- assumed to be Gulf of St Lawrence), so it is not clear why the location McIntosh gives is Queen Charlotte Sound which is in the Canadian Pacific. There appear to be no other sounds of the same name. [details]
