Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEditor's comment The coordinates of the type locality given above are not exact, and were calculated using Google Earth.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorEtymology The species epithet lumbricoides refers to its resemblance to an earthworm.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHomonymy As a result of synonymizing Bucherta Rullier, 1965 with Dasybranchus Grube, 1850, Bucherta lumbricoides Rullier, 1965 becomes a junior homonym of Dasybranchus lumbricoides Grube, 1878, a species described from Philippines.  [details]

Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorSynonymy Bucherta lumbricoides was described as a new genus and species by Rullier (1965), with base on a single specimen 60 mm long with more than 200 segments, collected down-shore, at Dunwich, North Stradbroke Island (Brisbane, Queensland, Australia). The genus was diagnosed as “Capitellidae ne póssedant que des crochets, à l’exclusion de toute soie capillaire” (Rullier, 1965: 191), and it was also suggested that this taxa could belong to a new familly, placed between Arenicolidae and Capitellidae, but that numerous points in common with other genera of Capitellidae supported its placement under this family. However, both the illustrations and the description given by Rullier (1965) show that this taxa was described with base on a posterior fragment of a capitellid, and that the described retracted prostomium is in reallity the pygidium. This explains also the lack of capillary chaetae in such a long portion of capitellid. In the same station where this specimen was collected, Rullier (1965) identified as Dasybranchus caducus (Grube, 1846) one specimen 25 cm long, and a middle fragment 12 cm long, without prostomium nor pygidium. The posterior fragment described as Bucherta lumbricoides is probably the posterior part, including the pygidium, of this specimen. Thus, the genus Bucherta Rullier, 1965 seems to be a junior synonym of Dasybranchus Grube, 1850, and Bucherta lumbricoides Rullier, 1965 a junior synonym of Dasybranchus caducus (Grube, 1846), as stated by Gallardo (1968: 116).
