Nomenclature Eunice laticeps is a replacement name of Ehlers (1868: 312) because two E. tentaculata names were published almost in the same year. Eunice tentaculata Quatrefages appeared in Quatrefages' monographic two-volume work, which is always treated as not published until 1866. Thus E. tentaculata Kinberg, 1865 is treated as the senior name. Fauchald (1986, 1992) discusses the case. Ehlers replacement name, E. laticeps, is introduced very briefly in a list of Eunice species in a long footnote thus: "E. laticeps (mihi) = tentaculata Ouatrefages, Histoire des Anneies a. a. 0. pg. 317. Port Western. (Der Name, bereits von Kinberg einer Eunice gegeben, musste geändert werden.) [The name, already given by Kinberg to an Eunice, had to be changed.] As contemporaries noticed the homonymy at the time there seems little doubt the assignment of which was junior is correct. [details]
