Checked: verified by a taxonomic editorHomonymy Costa (1867: 55) indicates he was aware of a homonymy conflict with Quatrefages earlier name, and also indicates the two names may refer to the same species. Costa seems to be correct that Quatrefages (1850: 361) did not at first describe his species with characters that enable it to be recognised. Quatrefages (1866:376) has a text description, without figures in his second characterisation of the species. The species was large at 10-12 cm. In both of Costa's usages there is text only, without figures, and the 1867 usage adds nothing descriptive.
Costa (1867) wrote: "Questa specie è stata da noi descritta nel volume primo pubblicato nel 1862 ( pag. 84). Il signor Quatrefages nella recente opera sugli Anellidi venuta in luce nel 1865 descrive pure e figura con lo stesso nome la specie medesima da noi descritta , della quale vorrebbe far risalire l'anteriorità per lui al 1850 , epoca in cui in una memoria sul sistema nervoso degli Anellidi (1) indicò col nome di Lysidice torquata una specie della quale accenna alcune particolarità del sistema nervoso, senza però additare alcun carattere zoologico valevole a farne riconoscere od almeno intravedere la specie, e neppur l'accompagna con figrura che potesse supplire al testo: sicchè quel nome avrebbe potuto in seguito applicarlo a qualunque altra gli fosse piaciuto. La invocata anteriorità quindi non esiste ; e comunque vi fosse stata coincidenza di nome, facile a verificarsi lorquando l' animale da battezzarsi offre qualche carattere assai spiccato che suggerisce il nome; l' anteriorità della descrizione non appartiene al Zoologo Francese. La sinonimia quindi della specie in parola dovrà andare così.
[This species was described by us in the first volume published in 1862 (page 84). M. Quatrefages in his recent work on the Anellides came to light in 1865 and describes with the same name the same species described by us, which he would like to track forward to him in 1850, a time when in a memory on the nervous system of the Anellidi (1) pointed to the name of Lysidice torquata, a species which mentions some peculiarities of the nervous system, but does not add any zoological character worthy of recognizing or at least glimpsing the species, nor does it accompany it with a figure that could supersede the text : so that name could later apply it to any other [worm] he liked. Therefore, the invoked precedence does not exist; and in any case there was a coincidence of the name, easy to occur when the animal to be baptized offers some very distinct character that suggests the name; The foregoing description does not belong to the French Zoologist. So the synonymy of the species in question must go this way.] [details]
