From editor or global species database
Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorBreeding The later papers of Clark & Hess on reproductive swarming were written while the "Atlantic palolo" was placed in Leodice. Earlier Treadwell (1921, reported as Leodice fucata) has a good summary of knowledge to that date, including swarming dates. [details]
